LYON COUNTY, Iowa (KEYC) - A Lyon County Sheriff’s Deputy has died of injuries she suffered in a car accident while on-duty.
Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says Deputy Stephanie Schreurs, a 24-year-veteran of the force, succumbed to her injuries Tuesday night after four days in a Sioux Falls hospital.
Schreurs' Police SUV apparently rolled into a ditch while taking a sharp curve on a Lyon County Road last Friday.

An investigation into the crash is still ongoing and a memorial fund has been set up in her honor at Security Savings Bank in Larchwood, Iowa.
