The two-vehicle collision on U.S. Highway 169 about 1 p.m. Thursday that demolished a passenger car and sent its driver to the hospital remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol (ISP), according to a crash report released Thursday night by the ISP.

Danielle Shreffler Mooers, 18, of Minburn was transported by air ambulance to a Des Moines hospital after her 2005 Ford Focus was rear-ended by an Ogden Community School District school bus on U.S. Highway 169 at 180th Street north of Minburn.

According to the ISP crash report, Mooers was southbound on U.S. Highway 169 and slowing or stopping in order to turn left into a farm residence on the east side of the state highway.

The Ogden bus, driven by Lisa Marie Dunbar, 43, of Ogden and carrying about 20 students, was also traveling southbound and failed to stop or yield for Mooers’ vehicle, striking it with great force and causing extensive rear-end damage.

Mooers’ vehicle came to rest facing south on the northbound shoulder, and the bus came to rest facing south on the southbound shoulder.

Neither Dunbar nor the students were injured in the mishap.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s office, Minburn First Responders, Minburn Volunteer Fire Department, Dallas Center Volunteer Fire Department and Dallas County EMS responded.
