Badger, Iowa — A Fort Dodge woman was killed in a two-car accident in Badger yesterday afternoon.

Authorities say a tractor with a snow blower was blowing snow to clear a farm driveway causing a temporary white out condition on the road.

A Toyota Camry driven by James Harris of Fort Dodge was heading south and moved over the center line and then collided with a northbound Ford Focus driven by Robert Eilerts of Algona.

A passenger in Harris’ vehicle, 81-year-old Norma Harris, of Fort Dodge, died as result of the injuries sustained in the accident.

Harris and Eilerts were transported to a nearby medical facility for treatment.

The crash remains under investigation with the Iowa State Patrol.
