Crash: There are only three new fatality accident reports from the Iowa State Patrol this week. That's a manageable number so let's have at it. I'll cover them in three different posts, due to length.


Minimal Reports

A crash occurred in Mitchell County on October 19, 2010

In this accident we have what appears to be a garbage truck backing up and striking a pedestrian. The pedestrian was 76 year old Marvin Rogers. This fatal accident took place at 5th and Vine in Osage. Expience tells me the rub will be whether the garbage truck had a working rear warning device versus the elderly gentleman's ability hear. Here is Trooper McNall's description.
