Wisconsin resident dies in northeast Iowa crash


SAGEVILLE, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say they have arrested the driver of a pickup truck that fled after a deadly crash near Sageville in northeast Iowa.

The Dubuque County sheriff's office says 41-year-old Earl Hiland III was arrested Wednesday. He is being held on $11,000 bond.

Hiland is charged with leaving the scene of a fatality accident, failure to provide information and aid-leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and driving while license denied or revoked. No attorney information was available late Wednesday.

Investigators say Hiland's pickup crossed the center line on U.S. Highway 52 and hit an oncoming car driven by 28-year-old Casey Craugh, of Hazel Green, Wis. Craugh's car was then struck by van.

Craugh died at the scene. The van's driver, 42-year-old Jennifer Pape, of Sherrill, was hospitalized.
