A Bellevue, Iowa, man who served as an Anamaosa, Iowa, police officer was killed in a two-vehicle crash early Saturday on Iowa Highway 62 in Jackson County.
Mitchell Roy Kelchen, 40, of Bellevue, a passenger in a 2012 Buick Enclave, was killed in the crash.
Here’s what happened about 7:38 a.m. on the 16000 block of Iowa Highway 62, according to Iowa State Patrol:
Marjorie Louise Hendrickson, 60, of Bellevue, Iowa, was driving a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country northbound on Iowa Highway 62 south of 167th Street.
Tina Marie Kelchen, 40, of Bellevue, Iowa, was driving the Enclave southbound on Iowa Highway 62 near the same location. Hendrickson allegedly crossed the center line and struck the Kelchen vehicle head-on in the southbound lane.
Tina Marie Kelchen and Hendrickson were transported by helicopter for treatment.
