The Daily reported Thursday that an accident on Interstate 35 had resulted in one fatality; the article was later updated to reflect information from the Iowa State Patrol indicating that no one had died.

When contacted again regarding the accident, the Iowa State Patrol stated that someone had died in the accident. Because the death had not been a result of the accident but rather its cause, it was not listed as a fatality in the crash report.

The driver of the bus involved in the accident experienced a heart attack, killing him and causing the bus to crash into the median. According to the Iowa State Patrol, a medical condition such as this is not included in their crash reports.

The Daily was unable to find any crash reports regarding the bus accident.
