So who is involved in this accident? Zachary Swenka (vehicle 1), 18, Bryan Cooling, 47 (vehicle 2); passengers included Toni Cooling (42), Daniel Bechtel (15), Dustin Cox (16), Chloe Keith (14), Claire Riggan (14) and Mackenzie Lown (14). The first car, the Chevy Lumina appears to have had 6 people in it. The second, a 2010 Honda had two people in it. This is a mess with all these lives disrupted. From the report it's my opinion fault will be placed on Swenka and certainly not on Cooling. I wish it were easy to say I don't see a lot of this, but I do and many of these accidents are being caused by digital distractions by drivers not paying attention to their driving. I'm not saying this one was but I am seeing a lot that are. If we can help, give us a call (Barbara will probably answer the phone) or drop me an email.

I'm going to skip the Konecne accident out of Webster County since it appears to be of the second category of accidents. To read the report you can follow this link.
This brings us to the fourth accident for today, the Yeager-Clapsaddle Accident out of Marshall County, Iowa on October 12, 2011 on Highway 30 at Jessup Avenue. This is a failure to yield case or in layman's terms, a stop sign case. We have the guy driving vehicle one not stopping and the car that has the right of way crashing into him. Pretty simple really; involved were Gordon Yeager, 94 (age related also?), Charles Clapsaddle, age 64, Norma Yeager (90) and Barbara Clapsaddle age unknown.

Okay I've got grass to mow and leaves to pick up so let's get to the final fatality report from an accident out of Lee County. The accident location is south of Highway 2/W-78 in a farm pond. Hoyt Reynolds is reported as the 26 year old driver of the first car, a 1994 Pontiac Grand Prix. No other car is noted to be involved. A passenger, Thomas Walljasper was noted to have died. The description is of particular interest because of the facts described. We have a car not stopping for a stop sign, then entering a farm yard, continuing on to a pond, going into the pond where the passenger is noted to have drowned. The accident time is noted to be 10:30 pm although I'm not sure how that was determined. Read the description below. Very strange to say the least because one is led to believe alcohol may have been involved due to the fact the report indicates a blood and urine test were performed to determine if alcohol was involved. The autopsy of the passenger will be instructive on his level of sobriety. No conclusions can be reached about the facts of this accident until after all chemical tests have been finalized. I do see quite a few drunk driver civil lawsuits and lawsuits against the bar for serving someone either while intoxicated or to the point of becoming intoxicated. The intoxicated driver then goes out and kills themselves or causes injury to someone else. If the drunk driver kills themselves the dependents can sue the bar for damages. If you have such a case and we can help you either call the office of drop me an email. email@example.com or 515-222-1110. Fax us the report if you have one and follow this link to read this report. Fax: 515-222-0718.
