Gladbrook woman loses life as a result of crash

August 17, 2017

Highway 14 (1500-mile Sanford Avenue) - Shortly after 8 AM 8/16/17, a serious crash occurred on Highway 14, approximately four miles north of Marshalltown. The preliminary investigation indicates that a southbound vehicle operated by Waleed Parvez of Waterloo initiated the pass of the vehicle and trailer that he was following, operated by William Young of Gladbrook; however, there was an oncoming northbound vehicle operated by Noel Arnold of Marshalltown. Waleed and Arnold both drove onto the northbound shoulder of the highway in an attempt to avoid collision. Waleed reportedly lost control of the vehicle on the gravel shoulder and re-entered the roadway striking the trailer of the Young vehicle, which subsequently caused the trailer and vehicle to jackknife and roll.

All four occupants of the Young vehicle were transported to Unity Point Hospital- Marshalltown. William Young sustained serious injury and passenger Marjorie Phillips of Gladbrook later died at Unity Point Hospital. This accident remains under investigation with pending charges.
