Clear Lake Man Dies in Rollover Accident in Wapello County


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.
