A 2010 Honda Civic, driven by one student, with the other as a passenger, was northbound when it entered a curve and began to slide on the road, which was 100 percent ice-covered at the time, the sheriff's office said. A 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck was southbound on K22, when the Honda entered into its path, striking it on the passenger side.
The siblings were taken to a Sioux City hospital, where they were pronounced dead. The pickup truck driver, who was not immediately identified, was not injured in the accident.
