A 26-year-old Boscobel woman was killed last Friday afternoon after she apparently jumped from a moving pickup truck on County N south of Avoca.
The mishap occurred at around 12:20 p.m., on Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Iowa County Sheriff’s Department. The Iowa County 911 Dispatch Center received a call from the driver of a motor vehicle that his front seat passenger had exited the vehicle while it was traveling on County N in the town of Clyde.
Wesston Brownlee, 33, of Boscobel, stated he was northbound on County N in a 2012 Ford pickup truck when his wife, Elizabeth Brownlee, 26, Boscobel, opened the door and exited the truck, while it was still moving.
Elizabeth Brownlee was later pronounced dead at Upland Hills Health in Dodgeville as a result of her injuries.
