Wayne Ezell, 72, was traveling westbound near Glenwood on US Highway 34 when he was struck from behind by a pickup truck driven by Robb Philippus, 34. The incident occurred around 6:40 a.m. on July 24th. Philippus reported that he simply did not see the bicycle. Ezell is the ninth cyclist to have been killed in Iowa crashes in 2016. I am pretty sure there have been other collisions resulting in the death of the bicyclist. By now the number is higher than ten.
Another Cyclist Killed in Collision with Truck

You can’t even trust your own insurance company’s adjuster because they are concerned with paying you under your own policy. It’s not unusual for these collisions to result in severe, life changing injuries that are catastrophic so consider hiring us as soon after the collision as you are able.
