One person was killed and another injured in a fiery car accident just east of Iowa City last night. The Iowa state patrol says 20 year old Richard Casey of North Liberty was traveling north on Utah Avenue at about 6:30 when his vehicle veered into the east ditch, then back over the road into the west ditch where it caught fire. Police say the passenger in Casey’s vehicle was killed. They’re withholding the name pending notification of family. Casey was taken to University of Iowa Hospital for treatment.
