A former Iowan was killed in a snowboarding accident in Colorado this week. Authorities say 27-year-old Todd Dunkel was found in some trees Wednesday while ski patrol members were doing a final check of the slopes at the Breckenridge ski area. They tried to revive him, but determined he was already dead. He had suffered a fractured neck.
Dunkel grew up in Dyersville and graduated from Western Dubuque High School. He had been living in Federal Heights, Colorado, for the last six months.
