One-person was killed in a fiery crash Tuesday night in Adair County. The Iowa State Patrol says 61-year-old Richard Keith Burg of Fontanelle died after the 1996 Oldsmobile 88 he was driving went out of control on a gravel road and came to rest upright in a ditch, before bursting into flames.
Witnesses told authorities the car was fully engulfed in flames and there was nothing they could do to help the man. The accident happened as Burg was traveling east on 250th Street, about two-miles west of Fontanelle, just before 10-p.m. Tuesday.
