Single vehicle fatality on Highway 12

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.

The driver of the vehicle was ejected from the vehicle and was dead at the scene.  It does not appear that seatbelts were being used.  Alcohol may also have been a factor.

The accident is being investigated by the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office and is being assisted by the Akron Police, Fire and Ambulance and the Plymouth County Medical Examiner's Office.

The name of the driver is not being released until relatives can be contacted.
