INDEPENDENCE — A Humboldt County woman died in a car-semi crash on U.S. Highway 20 in Buchanan County on Tuesday evening.

Bailey N. De Vries, 22, of Hardy, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Iowa State Patrol.

The crash was reported about 6:15 p.m. in the westbound lanes of Highway 20 near mile marker 252.

Troopers said De Vries was driving a 2006 Chevy Impala eastbound on Highway 20 when she lost control and slid through the median. The Impala then struck a semi tractor-trailer, which was westbound on Highway 20.
