Iowa Wesleyan Students in Vehicle Accident, No Major Injuries

Iowa Wesleyan University President Christine Plunkett issued this statement regarding a crash involving students headed for Des Moines….

“Iowa Wesleyan is grateful that our students and faculty who were involved in a vehicle accident this morning only sustained minor injuries. The minibus was being driven by a faculty member with seven student passengers headed to the State Capitol to participate in LGBTQ Day on the Hill. The bus rolled onto its side just east of Des Moines and four students were transported to local Des Moines hospitals.

All the students have been treated and released and were headed back to campus.  We are appreciative of the first responders and medical staff who cared for our students.  

The crash occurred on Highway 163 in Polk County east of the Metro Park East landfill Wednesday morning before 9 am.
