A 2004 Grand Prix and 2010 Dodge Ram were involved.
The Dodge was traveling southbound on 120th Avenue and the Grand Prix was traveling northbound on 120th Avenue.
According to Iowa State Patrol, the Dodge was traveling on the wrong side of the road and struck the Grand Prix head on.
The Grand Prix came to rest on the east side of the road, facing southbound. The Dodge came to rest in the ditch also facing southbound.
On Wednesday, Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Mindy Coe said investigators believe there were eight people in the Grand Prix.
Investigators say alcohol consumption may have been a factor.
Coe said the investigation is complicated as investigators are still trying to place all the occupants in the vehicles and determine who the driver was.
She said there were conflicting accounts regarding who was driving and where individuals were seated.
Seat belts were not used by all passengers.
Coe said charges could be possible.
