An older woman was driving in central Iowa Saturday when her car was hit and she was killed in the accident. Barbara Purtilo of Newton reportedly died at the scene of the crash.
Police officials said Purtilo’s car was struck by another car that allegedly crossed into the wrong lane. The other car hit the side of Purtilo’s minivan and forced it into oncoming traffic, where Purtilo’s van was hit.
Although the driver fled the scene, police officials said they arrested Roger Hofer of Cambridge as a suspect.
