Former Manning woman killed in crash

  • 0

A 26-year-old former Manning woman died and a young child was significantly injured in a Saturday morning crash west of Corning when the woman didn’t stop her semitrailer truck at a stop sign and was struck by a sport-utility vehicle, according to an Iowa State Patrol crash report.

Karmen Grabill, now of Hamlin, was northbound on Ginkgo Avenue about three miles west of Corning about 10:45 a.m. when her truck went into the road’s intersection with Iowa Highway 34 and was struck by a westbound vehicle driven by Wannita Olson, 54, of Corning.

The collision caused the truck to spin and strike its own trailer and go into the northwest ditch of the intersection.

Grabill, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died in the crash. Olson, who was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse and wearing a seatbelt, suffered unspecified injuries and was taken by ambulance to a Corning hospital.

A passenger, a 5-year-old Corning child who also wore a seatbelt, was flown by medical helicopter to a Des Moines hospital with unspecified injuries.
