An elderly woman was killed Sunday when her car was struck head-on by another vehicle whose driver had lost control of it, Bettendorf Police Sgt. Rich Streepy said. \u00a0\u00a0

The crash occurred at 1:10 p.m. in the 3800 block of US 67 (State Street).\u00a0

Streepy said a 17-year-old Bettendorf male was driving a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee east on US 67 when he lost control of his vehicle and crossed the center line into westbound traffic.\u00a0

The Jeep crashed head-on into a westbound 2006 Ford Focus driven by a 86-year-old Bettendorf woman. The impact trapped the woman in the vehicle and firefighters had to cut her out of the car.\u00a0

Both drivers were taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport.\u00a0

The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital. The condition of the teen was not released by authorities Sunday.

The names of the drivers were not released pending family notifications.\u00a0

The crash remains under investigation by Bettendorf crash investigators.\u00a0

A Davenport elementary school teacher arrested last month on allegations of child pornography was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury.

Michael Loren Ross, 43, will be arraigned July 27 on charges of receiving and distributing child pornography and possession of child pornography, according to court records.\u00a0

Federal prosecutors also are seeking forfeiture of any property used to commit or to promote the commission of the alleged offenses. That property, according to the indictment, includes computer hardware and computer storage devices.\u00a0

The filing of the indictment supersedes a criminal complaint that was filed June 23 in U.S. District Court, Davenport.

According to court documents:

On March 27, a special agent with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation received a tip through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a user named \"Mike Ross,\" who had a Hotmail email address, uploaded a video depicting child pornography to his Dropbox account on Feb. 7.

The agent executed a search warrant several days later for the Dropbox account, which was opened by Ross in July 2013, and found that it was a paid account and that files were being uploaded from at least three devices.

The account had numerous files that depicted prepubescent females performing sex acts.

On June 19, Davenport Police Detective Erin Pape obtained a search warrant for Ross and his home, garages/storage areas on his property and vehicles owned or operated by him.

Officers executed the search warrant the following day and seized Ross's cellphone, laptop, digital camera, camcorder and a thumb drive.

Ross, who was home during the search, admitted that he possessed child pornography and that he both received and distributed it.

He told officers that he exchanged child pornography through Dropbox links being shared on Kik, a freeware instant messaging mobile application.

Ross also admitted that he used his phone and laptop to access the files and that he did so for his own sexual gratification, according to court documents.\u00a0

He was arrested June 26. On July 7, Magistrate Judge Stephen B. Jackson Jr. denied prosecutors' request for Ross to be in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.

The judge ordered that Ross must live in a transitional housing facility and abide by a curfew and remain on GPS monitoring, among other conditions of his pretrial release.

Ross, a fifth-grade at Wilson Elementary School, was placed on administrative leave.

Davenport police said Friday morning that the condition of a Davenport man hit by a vehicle Wednesday night when he was crossing Brady Street\u00a0 is no longer considered life-threatening.

While the investigation is ongoing, no charges are expected to be filed in the case, police said in a news release.

At 7:05 p.m. Wednesday, police, fire and EMS were dispatched to the 6400 block of Brady Street for an accident involving a single vehicle and a pedestrian.

Police say Bruce Hamilton, 61, of Davenport, was crossing the roadway when he was struck by a pickup truck that was driving north in the western most lane of northbound Brady Street.

Hamilton was taken by EMS to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport, and later transferred to University Hospitals, Iowa City for serious, life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck, James Fisher, 59, of Davenport, was uninjured.

It was more hideous than I thought.

For a final walk-through of the old Twin Bridges Motor Inn in Bettendorf, expectations started low. Everyone knows the place was a frequent flyer for police calls. Even a couple of years ago, the condition of the lobby, including the smell, gave a powerful first impression/warning of what was to come.

But I had no idea it was that bad.

Even though it's accurate, you hate to call it a dump. For many people, it was home.

Over the next couple of weeks, Twin Bridges will be emptied of its soiled contents, stripped of asbestos, then taken down. In its place, a shiny new $22 million housing complex will rise from the grounds just north of the Mississippi River. The Des Moines-based Newbury Living is redeveloping the site, making it much more suitable to our area's self-proclaimed \"premier city.\"

The two-story motel with 68 rooms had become a serious thorn in the side of its next-door neighbor, the Bettendorf Police Department.

\"The Police and Fire departments responded on a very regular basis to Twin Bridges,\" Police Chief Phil Redington wrote Wednesday\u00a0in an email. \"It was for medical calls, assaults, noise complaints, drugs.\"

When we pulled into the parking lot Wednesday to meet our tour guide, Newbury Living district maintenance supervisor Chris Jackson, he was pointing a large flashlight into an open window.

\"We sealed the building, and someone broke in the next day and went through the whole thing,\" Jackson said. \"We spent the whole day changing locks, and they broke in again by the next morning.\"

Some of the trespassers were after whatever they could steal. The thieves had taken the breakers out of a breaker box, but must have been interrupted before yanking the wires and stripping them of copper. Several of the air/heat units that are built into the rooms were hauled away, too.

Somebody broke the water line, so we heard the constant run and drip of water as we walked the dark hallways. The demo crews will need water to keep areas damp and dust out of the air as they remove asbestos next week. But the power was turned off.

We walked around broken ceiling tiles that fell onto bad-smelling carpet. Jackson said that whoever broke in was looking for copper lines in the ceilings, too.

But it was the guest rooms that were most disturbing. After all, the thefts were no great loss. Most of that stuff was headed for the Dumpsters in the parking lot, anyway.

As we entered one of the second-floor guests rooms, Jackson offered an admonishment: \"I would suggest touching as little as you can. There's nothing in here worth getting sick over.\"

The warning was unnecessary.

We saw at least a half-dozen motel rooms that were being used, right up until the sale of the motel last week, for long-term housing.

Someone clearly had been living in Room 38. I will forever wonder why that person didn't collect his or her belongings. The bedding was personal, not motel issue. Handmade artwork hung on two walls. A shelf was full of canned foods, and there was a half-full bottle of TUMS on the nightstand and several CDs on the unmade bed.

I felt myself wrinkling my nose. The room smelled of cigarettes, and the painted concrete walls were the color of nicotine. The bathroom was filthy.

Then I saw a cane resting against a wall behind the door, and my disgust turned to sympathy. The stinky, dirty, 14-by-14-foot room had been someone's home. Why didn't they take the clothes that hung from the rack inside the door? Why not take the food?

As we crossed the threshold of another junk-cluttered motel room \u2014 an overflowing ashtray resting upon an open package of moldy cheese slices \u2014 it occurred to me the Twin Bridges Motor Inn looked like a refugee camp. And I wondered why so many of the refugees failed to claim their few possessions.

\"It's easy to get more free clothes and free food,\" Jackson said, shrugging his shoulders at conditions that stopped me in my tracks. A former housing inspector, our tour guide is not easily impressed by overturned mattresses and moldy refrigerators. When I asked about an odd-looking device in the hallway outside a room, he replied, \"That's the steering column out of a car,\" and he kept on walking.

Just about everything in the place now is gone or going. Furniture, appliances, carpeting, residents' personal property \u2014 it's all headed for the Dumpsters. Even the blue roof on the building isn't being spared. Though fairly new, Jackson said, removing it will destroy it.

The asbestos crew will be in next week. When that's all been removed, the place will be torn down, and Jackson estimated it will take mere hours to fall.

Twin Bridges was built in 1961\u00a0\u2014 one year after its namesake second span was added to the Interstate 74 bridge. And now it's about to be carted off in piles of rubble.

\"We are pleased that the residents from Twin Bridges have found new places to live,\" Chief Redington wrote in his email. \"I look forward to the new development on the site. It will be a great addition to our downtown.\"

It'll be a pretty good subtraction, too.

The heavy rains spawned by summer storms are pushing the Mississippi River to near flood stage later next week, while the Rock River is expected to rise to major flood level, according to the National Weather Service, Davenport.

Thursday\u2019s storm produced winds up to 70 mph that are being blamed for knocking down a section of steel framing that had just been erected at the Sterilite plant site.

Meteorologist Dave Cousins of the National Weather Service, Davenport, said that storms that have reached into northeast Iowa and northwest Illinois and central Wisconsin have put a lot of water into both the Mississippi River and Rock River basins.

But those forecasts did not include the rains that fell from the strong storms that blew through the region Friday, so the numbers could rise higher.

As of Friday night, the Rock River at Moline is expected to climb to 14.9 feet Monday night into Tuesday and remain above the 14-foot stage at least through Friday. The Mississippi River is expected to climb to 14.1 feet Thursday night into Friday.

The storms that rolled through the region Thursday into Friday morning.

The National Weather Service, Davenport, reported that\u00a0a thunderstorm rapidly developed into a high precipitating supercell near Mount Pleasant around 7 p.m. The storm produced torrential rain, damaging winds, and large hail in Henry and Jefferson counties.

The Weather Service reported that numerous streets in Mount Pleasant were inundated with water and one vehicle was disabled by water.

There also were downed branches, as well as a Dumpster, fence and large road detour sign and a large barn that blew over, according to the weather service.

Additional storms developed along outflow boundaries, which produced heavy rain, lightning, and damaging winds to portions of eastern Iowa, according to the Weather Service.

Winds at the Davenport Municipal Airport reached 61 mph at 10:29 p.m. Winds in Eldridge reached 70 mph at 10:19 p.m.

In Davenport, there were some downed trees and large tree limbs. There also were reports of hail just north of Kimberly Road and west of Division Street.

At the Sterilite plant in northwest Davenport, the winds felled a section of steel frame, said Steven Callendar, regional vice president of Harrison, Walker and Harper, the company that is building the plant.

\u201cWe had just begun steel erection Monday,\u201d Callendar said Friday. \u201cWe really just started standing that steel up on Monday. Everything was braced off. Our steel erector has a plan and everything was checked off about 4:30 p.m. Everything was exactly as it was supposed to be.

\u201cAll we\u2019ve been able to confirm is that there was wind up to 70 mph, but we suspect a microburst in there,\u201d he said.

A person across the street from the construction heard it come down about 11:30 p.m. Callendar said.

A team of engineers will be in Monday to inspect the damage, and then workers will begin setting the steel again Tuesday, he added.

\u201cHad we had more than two sections up it would have been able to resist the wind better, but having only two frames up,\u201d Callendar said.

\u201cThis will be a small bump in the road,\u201d he said. \u201cIt won\u2019t have any impact on the opening date.\u201d

The storms that rolled through Friday afternoon spawned heavy rains, high winds, and possibly a couple of tornadoes.

Cousins said the dew point on Friday reach 78 degrees, which, he said, \u201cis air you can wear,\u201d and why it felt so heavy outside. It also provided the energy for the storms.

The dew point is that the atmospheric temperature below which dew will begin to form. The higher the dew point temperature, the more oppressive, and hotter, it feels.

Cousins said the heat and humidity will remain for Saturday with the high climbing into the lower 90s and the dew points reaching the lower to middle 70s.

\u201cThere is some relief on the horizon,\u201d Cousins said. The high Sunday is expected to reach 87 degrees while the high Monday will reach 82 degrees. The dew points should drop into the 60s which will make if feel more comfortable, he said.
