SHELDON, Iowa | A Sheldon woman was killed Saturday in an all-terrain vehicle crash that also injured an Ashton, Iowa, man.

The incident occurred shortly before 7 p.m. on a farm approximately 2 miles north of Sheldon. 

According to a news release from the O'Brien County Sheriff's Office, 26-year-old Garrett Crowl, of Ashton, was driving an ATV on a gravel road near a pond at 3066 McKinley Ave. with passenger Shaleah Donavon, 25, of Sheldon. 

The report said the ATV was traveling at a fairly high rate of speed, and as the ATV rounded a curve in the road, Crowl lost control. The vehicle slid sideways, rolled and struck a tree. Neither Crowl nor Donavon were wearing helmets, the report said. 

Crowl and Donavon were both transported by Sheldon Ambulance to Sanford Medical Center in Sheldon. Donavon was pronounced dead at the hospital. Crowl was later airlifted to Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The O'Brien County Sheriff's Office and Iowa State Patrol are continuing to investigate the crash.
