A woman was taken to the hospital, via helicopter, following an afternoon crash just outside of Oakland, Iowa. She has been identified as 26-year-old Jessica Luke of Oakland.

According to investigators, Luke was southbound on 450th Street, at Highway 6. Investigators say she either didn't stop or failed to yield to the semi truck traveling westbound on Highway 6.

The crash disabled the trailer of the semi and the trailer lost control of its braking system.

Luke had to be extricated from the car. She was taken to the hospital in extremely critical condition. The truck driver was not injured.
