An accident early Tuesday morning on Highway 23 claimed the life of a southeast Iowa man.
The Mahaska County Sheriff’s Office says a 2008 Ford Mustang driven by 22-year-old Morgan Sanders of rural Fremont was traveling northbound on the highway at 5:30 AM.
According to the preliminary investigation, Sanders lost control of his vehicle due to the snowy conditions and began sliding sideways down the highway. The Mustang slid into the path of a pickup truck that was traveling southbound and a collision occurred.
Sanders died at the scene of the wreck. The driver of the truck, 29-year-old Ethan VanDeKieft of Oskaloosa, was uninjured.
The accident remains under investigation.
