ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa -- Lyon County deputy Stephanie Schreurs died Tuesday from injuries she suffered in a single-vehicle accident Friday, according to a press release from the Iowa State Patrol.

Schreurs' death occurred in the early afternoon at a Sioux Falls hospital.

Schreurs was a 24-year veteran. At this time, the family is requesting privacy, the release said. 

Schreurs was injured at about 5:30 a.m. on Friday when her police SUV rolled at a sharp curve at County Road K52/Hickory Avenue and 160th Street near Rock Rapids.
