A Newton man, Shawn Sabin, age 29 was killed Saturday evening while driving his motorcycle in Des Moines near the intersection of Southeast 14th Street and Park Avenue at 6:15 p.m. when he collided with an SUV in front of HyVee.
There are conflicting reports of the details of this accident, so the investigation continues with several eye-witnesses.
In 2013, there were 41 motorcycle fatalities in Iowa. Of those, 34 did not wear a helmet. Unfortunately, Shawn Sabin, is now one of those statistics.
