Two Hinton High School students were killed Tuesday morning in an accident on K22 in Plymouth County, this according to school officials.
According to a press release from the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office, authorities received a report of a two-vehicle accident at about 8 a.m. Tuesday.
The sheriff's office says the crash occurred on County Road K22 near the intersection of Granite Avenue in southwest Plymouth County.
When first responders arrived at the scene they reported critical injuries to the driver and passenger of a 2010 Honda Civic and no injuries to the driver of a 2012 Dodge Ram pickup.
Authorities say the Honda was traveling northbound on K22 when it entered a curve in the road and began to slide. The pickup was traveling southbound on K22 when the Honda entered its path and was struck on the passenger side.
Authorities say the road conditions at the time were 100% ice covered.
The two injured were taken to Sioux City Hospitals, where they were later pronounced dead.
The Plymouth County Sheriff's Office and the Iowa State Patrol are investigating the crash.
Hinton Community School District Superintendent Todd Meyer says a senior girl and a freshmen boy from Hinton High School were the ones killed in the crash. He adds they were siblings.
Meyer says Hinton High School is in session Tuesday but school activities have been canceled for the evening.
Meyer says there is no planned vigil and counselors will be available for students.
