Wisconsin man dies in Floyd County, Iowa crash
Posted on Oct 23, 2011
In the second accident I'm going to guess the person on the bicycle died after being rear-ended by the 2009 Chevy Silverado. At this time no names have been publicly disclosed. This Lee County car-bike accident is still under investigation.
In the third fatal accident out of Floyd County two people died. Erin Lorraine Heffron, 35 from Rudd and Malcolm Davis, 71 from Wautoma, Wisconsin are listed on the report as fatalities. Heffron was driving a 1993 Toyota Camry and Davis was driving a 2000 Kenworth Tractor. Erin is in vehicle 1 and Malcolm in vehicle 2. This accident happened on Highway 27, a state highway so it's difficult to understand why the Camry is driving southbound in the northbound lane. The report doesn't indicate the car simply crossed the center line, it says he was driving south in the northbound lanes. This is a clear violation of the rules of the road, and liability should be pretty clear. I do note that the older driver is from Wisconsin and driving a tractor trailer, a fact which may indicate he was working. If that's true there may be both a personal injury suit against the offending driver and a workers' compensation case. Iowa workers' compensation benefits are really pretty good so his estate or dependents should have that aspect evaluated by an attorney licensed in Iowa.
