Coral Isle Deal, driving a 2003 Pontiac Vibe northbound on Highway 71 near Early, Iowa, veered off the roadway toward the ditch on the east side and overcorrected, veering back toward the west and crossing the center line. Larry Holub was driving his RV southbound on highway 71 at this time and tried to avoid a collision by swerving into the west ditch. The RV made contact with Ms. Deal's vehicle, and the front wheels of the RV came to rest on top of the vehicle in the ditch. Ms. Deal was only 16 years old and suffered fatal injuries from the accident. The accident remains under investigation.
