A Clear Lake man died in a single-car accident near Eddyville Thursday morning.
The Iowa State Patrol says a 2006 Mercury Montego driven by 81-year-old Ray Curts was traveling northbound on Highway 63 near the 50 mile marker.
For an unknown reason, the car left the roadway and hit a ditch on the right side of the road. The vehicle overturned and came to rest on its side in a field north of 212th Avenue.
Curts was transported to Ottumwa Regional Health Center but he died from injuries sustained in the crash.
