Authorities release the name of the driver in a fatal crash near Mapleton, Iowa


The Iowa State Patrol says 44-year-old Judith Krohn of Mapleton was driving on Highway 141 around one Saturday morning.

They say, Krohn lost control of the pickup after missing the curve and the vehicle rolled several times in the ditch.

Authorities say, her passenger, 59-year-old Albert Butler was partially ejected from the vehicle.

He was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City, where he later died.

Krohn was treated for what authorities say were non-life threatening injuries.

The patrol says alcohol is believed to be a factor.

However, authorities say charges are pending until blood results come back.
