A woman who was a passenger in a van died a week after the van and a car collided in Davenport, Iowa.
The 1993 Ford van was southbound on Lincoln Avenue when the driver turned on the right turn signal because she intended to move from the center to the right lane, according to Davenport Police. A 1999 Buick sedan was eastbound on 13th Street, stopped at the stop sign and then pulled out across the southbound lanes to make a left turn onto northbound Lincoln Avenue.
That’s when the van hit the sedan broadside on the driver’s side just before 5 p.m. Friday, August 1, 2014, police said.
The driver of the car, the driver of the van and one of the passengers in the van were taken by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
“Rebecca Nunley, age 52, of Davenport, was examined on scene by Davenport Fire Personnel with no sign of injury noted, she subsequently refused transport,” said a statement from Davenport Crash Investigation Unit Supervisor Sgt. Ron Waline. Nunley was also a passenger in the van.
Two days later, family members found Nunley unresponsive and she was taken to a hospital in Iowa City.
“She reportedly died on Friday August 8th with the preliminary cause of death attributed to an injury potentially related to this crash,” the statement said.
The driver of the Buick was cited after the crash for failing to yield from a stop sign and for no insurance.
