Iowan injured after being knocked off overpass

EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) — A 20-year-old Iowa woman has been injured in a fall after she was knocked off an overpass near Waterloo.

Authorities say Ellayna Wiedow, of Spirit Lake, was taken to Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo after the crash, which occurred around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Wiedow lost control of her vehicle, which struck a railing and stopped just east of the Cedar River on eastbound Interstate 380 in southwest Evansdale.

Authorities say she got out to survey the damage and was knocked over the railing onto the ground about 25 feet below when another vehicle struck her car.
