Wed, 28 May 2014 20:10:52 GMT — Authorities say a 6-year-old girl who was critically injured in an off-road utility vehicle crash near Montezuma has died. The Poweshiek County Sheriff's Office says Kara Meyer died Wednesday from injuries sustained in the rollover crash Monday. The Iowa State Patrol says Kara's father was driving the vehicle on a gravel road when it got too close to the ditch and rolled over. The vehicle pinned the girl, who was a passenger. Kara's 3-year-old brother was also a passenger, but neither he nor her father was seriously injured. Kara was eventually taken to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. The girl's family says it plans to donate her organs.
