On March 6, a six-year-old boy died from injuries incurred when his bicycle hit a motorcycle on Bank Street. 53-year-old Wesley Newman was riding his motorcycle westbound on Bank Street when he ran into the boy on his bicycle. Jason Ramos Nolasco was transported to Van Diest Medical Center and then via helicopter to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, where he succumbed to his injuries. An investigation and charges are pending in this case.
Steve’s Comments: What will matter about this case is the position and speed of the bike and motorcycle in relation to each other and the roadway. The time of day will also matter. Witnesses are vital to being able to determine fault. Obviously an estate would need to be opened for Mr. Nolasco.
