We've got four fatalities to report on. They include the Counties of Mitchell, Davis, Jasper and Winneshiek.

The Mitchell County accident is the garbage truck backing south on Fifth Street and "making contact" with Marvin Rogers. Making contact? Seriously? Were you even looking? I see how rushed the drivers are to get their runs done. This one will be interesting to investigate.

The second in Davis involves two motorcycles colliding in a rear end fashion as the front bike came to a stop or slowed down. The drivers were thrown off, ejected, and Timothy John Gott was killed. I could have the name wrong. He was 20.

The collision in Jasper County killed Teresa Fenton of Truro and I've already reported on this one. This was the I-80 crash where cars were stopping due to traffic congestion and the semi came up and crashed into the bunch of them. A check on Facebook produced these results:

The last crash is in Winneshiek County, Iowa and it involved a lone motorcyclist which the police seem to indicate was trying to outrun a police car. I'm not saying that was true, but that's what the police report indicates.
