Authorities say tall corn growing near a northern Iowa city may have contributed to a fatal, two-vehicle crash.

The Bremer County Sheriff's Office says the two cars were traveling in different directions Monday morning when they collided at an intersection about five miles outside of Sumner, Iowa.

One driver, 44-year-old Dawn Novak, of Sumner, was pronounced dead at the scene. The other driver, 47-year-old Logan Huebner, also of Sumner, received minor injuries along with a passenger in his vehicle. Both were taken to a local hospital.

Authorities say tall corn may have contributed to the collision, but they did not release additional information. The crash remains under investigation.
