Rural Hastings woman killed in Thursday car crash
A rural Adams county woman died in a one-vehicle car crash north of Hastings Thursday, June 27.
The Adams County Sheriff said Monday that Tessa Sadd, 39, died when her vehicle struck a bridge and caught fire about 1/2 mile west of Highway 281 on 94th street. That location is about three miles north of Hastings.
The sheriff said the accident happened at approximately 7:30 P.M that evening. Upon arrival of first responders the vehicle was totally engulfed in flames. A sheriff's spokesperson confirmed Monday that Sadd was the only person in the vehicle.
A sheriff's spokesperson also said results of an autopsy were pending, but as of Monday there was no indication of foul play or that drugs or alcohol were involved.
Last week a sheriff's official said the identification and family notification was delayed because of the condition of the body.
A recent court record indicated that Sadd's address was rural Hastings.
