Westfield woman dies in head-on collision

Monday, July 23, 2007

A Westfield woman was killed in a head-on collision northeast of Westfield, Friday afternoon.

At approximately 3:32 p.m., Amy Solomon, 47, was northbound on K-13 in a 2001 Chevy Blazer when, for unknown reasons, she crossed the center line into the southbound lane.

A southbound 1999 Mercury Cougar was cresting a small hill when it collided head-on with Solomon's SUV.

Solomon's vehicle was fully engulfed in flames when two pedestrians came upon the scene. The pedestrians were able to remove the driver of the Mercury before that vehicle was fully engulfed.

The Plymouth County Sheriff's Office reported that Solomon died at the scene and an autopsy was being scheduled.

The sheriff's office has not identified the driver of the second vehicle pending notification. The driver was flown to Mercy Medical Center by Mercy Air Care.

The Plymouth County Sheriff's Office was assisted in the investigation of this accident by the Akron Police Department, Akron Fire and Ambulance, and the Iowa State Patrol.
