Several motorcycle crashes and an ATV accident on private land are being investigated by the Iowa State Patrol. Anyone involved in such an accident or those who act as estate administrators or executors should act prudently and save the ATV and/or the motorcycle. This evidence is key to proving liability and damages.

4. A crash occurred in Washington County on September 3, 2016
This is another ATV accident, there are many in Iowa and many result in death of either the driver or the passenger. While I don’t know it isn’t unusual for the Iowa State Patrol to be evaluating the blood chemistry to determine sobriety of the driver. If the blood work supports an OWI there are some significant economic ramifications that can follow and the estate should get an attorney’s advice. SUMMARY: THE ATV WAS BEING OPERATED ON PRIVATE LAND WHEN FOR UNKOWN REASONS THE DRIVER LOST CONTROL AND ROLLED EJECTING BOTH RIDERS ACCIDENT IS UNDER INVESTIGATION CHARGES PENDING
