One Person Dead after Accident Near Monticello

One person is dead following an accident on the south end of Monticello on Monday night.

Authorities say the victim was 86-year old Mary Ann Feltes of Anamosa.

The accident happened around 8:30 pm at the interchange of U.S. Highway 151 and Amber Road X-44. The Iowa State Patrol says Feltes was driving her mini-van southbound on Highway 151 when it left the road to the right, traveled through the ditch, crossed Amber Road and then came to rest in the ditch near the Highway 151 southbound on-ramp.

Feltes was transported to Jones Regional Medical Center in Anamosa, but authorities say she did not survive.
