A one vehicle rollover took the life of a young mother from Rugby on late Sunday evening.

The Pierce County Law Enforcement Center received a call reporting an accident, at approximately 11:15 p.m. A passerby dialed 9-1-1 when they discovered the rollover while driving by on a gravel road northeast of Rugby.

She did not appear to be wearing a seatbelt during the time of the accident.

Katie Ann Snyder, 26, Rugby, was transported to the Heart of America Medical Center by the Rugby Ambulance Service with numerous injuries. Snyder later passed away at the medical facility as a result of her injuries.

Responding agencies were: The Pierce County Sheriff’s Dept., Rugby Rural Fire Dept. Rugby Emergency Ambulance Service and the Rugby Police Dept.
