ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a northwest Iowa sheriff's deputy has died following a crash in her patrol vehicle.
The Lyon County Sheriff's Department says Deputy Stephanie Schreurs died Tuesday afternoon. She was injured Friday morning when her sport utility vehicle ran off a road while entering a sharp curve. The SUV ran into a ditch, vaulted over a private driveway and rolled, coming to rest on the driver's side.
She was flown to a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, hospital.
The Iowa State Patrol is investigating the crash.
Officials say Schreurs was a 24-year-old veteran of the department.
