" the iowa state patrol says icy road conditions may have caused a crash early this morning that killed three people in benton county. the crash involved four-vehicles. a minivan and a pick-up truck k crashed around 5:15 a-m, on highway 30, just east of 16th avenue. that's near keystone. the state patrol says the driver of the minivan carrying ten people lost control. another vehicle then hit the minivan, causing two other vehicles to crash. three people from the
authorities have not released their names yet. kcrg-tv9's brady smith joins us in the newsroom. brady, what else are investigators saying about the crash? trooper bob conrad with the iowa state patrol says while it appears ice did play a role, he says it's also apparent that the driver of the minivan failed to maintain control of that vehicle. he says the van was also overloaded, and that meant too many people inside the vehicle, and not enough seat belts. cathy cutler with the local d-o-t district office says they had road crews on the stretch of highway 30 where the crash happened, during and after the storm that hit eastern iowa earlier this week. she told us the plow and salt trucks had a constant presence on area highways, and they had cleared off that section of road. trooper conrad says road conditions can be unpredictable this time of year, and it's possible there could have been snow melting on that section of road, then re-froze overnight. he told us all three people killed were not wearing seat
vehicle. "53:07-:15 "i cannot say enough about seat belts. two of the fatalities were fully ejected out of this vehicle. seat belts anywhere in the vehicle make a difference. seat belts save lives. " ":13-:24 "we actually had called in extra people, just because of the duration of this storm. especially in the rural areas, we were seeing some blowing and drifting snow. so we wanted to make sure we did have that presence 24/7. " trooper conrad says this crash is certainly a tragedy, but he hopes others will take from it the importance of wearing seat belts, no matter where you're riding in n vehicle. when we spoke with conrad earlier today, he mentioned their effort to notify family members was taking a bit longer than expected, and they had expanded their search outside u-s borders. live in the newsroom, brady smith, kcrg-tv9. we have a quiet night across eastern iowa tonight. this is a live look at the conditions from our dubuque city cam. meteorologist joe winters joins us now. joe, light snow is gone for

permanent birth control product. essure is a device that the chemical and pharmaceutic al company, bayer, owns. it's a coil that a doctor implants into a woman's fallopian tubes, which then prevents conception. marketing for the product says it's a non-surgical process that's been around since 2002. but over the past several years, the food and drug administration has received more and more reports about essure problems. the f-d-a is actively evaluating the product after an intensive panel meeting in september... ... and it plans to announce its findings by the end of the month. kcrg t-v nine's jill kasparie joins us in the studio. jill, many are waiting to see what will happen... that's right. women say they have all kinds of side effects from this device - side effects they weren't told about when doctors implanted the device and aren't listed as risks with essure. one cedar rapids woman we spoke with just had a hysterectomy to get the devices
"i'm still processing all of this. i'm still thinking about why this is even happening. . what's happening to brittany dougan all started in 2009. "when i had my last child i decided i didn't really want anymore." the mother of three talked to her doctor about essure and got it implanted shortly after. "six months after the procedure i noticed i was feeling not normal, very lethargic, very fatigue, i was tired all of the time. and so i was up at the university trying to seek answers as to why i was feeling these ways." dougan says after thousands of dollars of medical bills stacked up, one obgyn mentioned essure might be her problem. he directed her to a facebook page where about 25-thousand women are sharing their symptoms... and they sounded familiar. "chronic fatigue, bloating,
of us women, there are days you look six months pregnant and you are not. headaches, we call it a brain fog, but it's just confusion." dougan filed a complaint with the f-d-a. the agency says it has received more than five- thousand formal reports of issues with essure since it was approved in 2002. nats transition of your choosing? dr. kelly ward - an obgyn at the university of iowa hospitals and clinics - has been pututng essure in patients for nearly a decade. the product is just a small coil. "we put a hystoroscope through the cervix to the uterus and we deploy these coils so that the tail of the coil is in the uterus. the coils deploy along the length of the tube and this area will form a scar." she says most of her patients who get the device are happy with the results. "i have put in hundreds of coils
four." essure's labeling warns about chronic pelvic pain and the obgyn says that can happen in some women. whether the product coululcause the other symptoms described by women like hougan... "i think in certain patients potentially. but i think that's a small subset. i think many more people could benefit from it if they are the right patients for the prredure." she believes some of these symptoms could be from withdrawal following use of other hormonal methods of birth control. the obgyn says she's interested to hear what the f-d-a has to say at the end of february. "i think it's important for women's health to keep women's reproductive rights in their it's not safe, we shouldn't use it. but if it is safe in the right setting, to take it away from women is not a good thing." other women to know nothing good can come from essure. of her system, shehe her children. "i just, over the years, have not been able to do things that
so she she's taking a stand with thousands of other women making sure that bayer and the fda hear their stories. "we are real people and this is happening to us and to get rid of it. right now they are protected until february when they come out with their final decision there's nothing we can do, we are just sitting ducks. " we reached out to bayer about this issue. the company sent us a statement saying it stands by essure and it reads in part, "the safety and efficacy of essure is orted by more thahaa decade of science and real world clinical experience." i also talked with the f-d-a. a spokeswoman says manufacturer s have to submit annual reports about devices and reports of death or serious injury. the f-d-a says any time a device on the market is causing problems, they review it to determine if more action is needed. beth and bruce- again, the
know more about their review of the product by the end of the month. thanks, jill. iowa lawmakers are considering a bill that would require local governments and authorities to tell federal agencies when they have illegal immigrants in custody. house republicans proposed the bill, which was passed by a subcommittee today. normally, immigration officers ask local police departments to hold illegal immigrants until federal authorities can pick them up. but some cities and c cnties are considered sanctuaries those are places in the u-s that refuse to hold illegal immigrants after their court ordered detention. happening. immigration studies, more than 20 counties in iowa follow sanctuary policies. that includes linn, johnson, dubuque and benton counties. clayton county is using new technology t t keep track of inmates when they leave jail on work release. last month, the sheriff's office started using a g-p-s
