SLOAN, Iowa (AP) - Five people have been killed and three others taken to a hospital in serious condition after a head-on crash east of Sloan.

Woodbury County Sheriff Dave Drew tells the Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/11OjRrE ) that the crash happened about 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Highway 141 and Eastland Avenue. Drew says a white Chevy Trailblazer was westbound on Highway 141 when the driver veered onto the gravel and overcorrected, causing them to lose control and crash into an eastbound black Ford truck. There were four occupants in each vehicle.

Authorities are not releasing the names of the victims. Drew said road conditions were not a factor in the crash.

An investigation is ongoing.
