Matthew Buckner was driving his Northbound on 315th St. when he lost control of the van he was driving approximately 100 yards north of the Highway 34 intersection. He entered the east ditch and rolled several times before coming to rest on its side trapping Mr. Buckner inside. He was freed by mechanical extrication and was taken to Creighton Medical Center in Omaha, dying later that morning.
He was driving a 1989 GMC van. Under Iowa law, if he had dependents they maybe be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if at the time of the collision the driver was working.
