Waterloo man charged after fatal head-on crash

WAVERLY, Iowa (AP) — A Waterloo man has been charged in connection with a head-on crash in northeast Iowa that killed a Minnesota woman.

The Bremer County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release Tuesday that 59-year-old Verle Dean Wygle was charged with homicide by vehicle. A court hearing for Wygle was held Tuesday, and he was then released.

Wygle was charged after an investigation into a July 24 crash that killed 51-year-old Tracy Lynn Willis, of Fairbault, Minn.

The sheriff’s office says Wygle was northbound in the southbound lanes of Highway 218 between Janesville and Waverly when his pickup truck crashed into a van driven by Wygle.

Court records do not list an attorney.
