On 11/1/10 at 2059 hours, the Plymouth County Communications Center received a 911 call regarding a motor vehicle accident on Highway 12 south of Westfield, Iowa.

Emergency responders and sheriff's deputies arrived and found that the accident involved one vehicle and that the driver was deceased.  Preliminary information is indicating that the vehicle was southbound on Highway 12, the driver lost control of the vehicle and dropped off the west side of the road.  The vehicle then was over corrected and entered the east ditch, where it rolled several times.
