The vehicles collided in the intersection of Highways 57 and 32. In Pfeifer's car, his wife, 51-year-old Peggy Pfeifer, was killed. James Pfeifer and his 21-year-old daughter Hannah Pfeifer were both critically injured and flown to Sioux City. The Pfeifers, who are from Clarkson, had to be removed from their car with the Jaws of Life. Beyke was taken to Faith Regional Hospital in Norfolk for treatment.
