Fatal crash on US 151 in Dodge County

DODGE COUNTY — A 43-year-old woman has died following a crash involving a pickup truck and a semi that occurred early Tuesday morning, July 11th in Dodge County. The victim has been identified as Jessica Miller of Evansdale, Iowa.

It happened around 2:15 a.m. on northbound US 151 near Gunn Road, in the Township of Calamus.

Preliminary investigation shows that a 25-year-old man from Iowa was operating a 2006 Ford pickup truck with a trailer, with a race car inside, on northbound on US 151 in the right lane, approaching the rear of a 2014 Volvo semi with a box trailer.

Officials say the pickup truck attempted to swerve to the left traffic lane to avoid a collision with the semi, but the right side of the pickup truck struck the left rear and left side of the semi.

Miller, a passenger in the pickup truck, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene by the Dodge County medical examiner.

The 25-year-old driver of the pickup suffered minor injuries and declined medical treatment.

The 29-year-old driver of the semi wasn’t hurt.

The crash remains under investigation.
