A Sheldon man was killed in the wreck of an all-terrain vehicle. The Iowa State Patrol reports that 62-year-old Rodney VanMeeteren was riding a 2007 Honda ATV about two and a half miles southwest of Sheldon’s southwest corner. VanMeeteren was going south in the east ditch of Log Avenue.
VanMeeteren was apparently exiting the ditch when the ATV rolled over coming to rest on the driver, says the Trooper’s report. The accident was found by a passer-by at about 3 P.M. Friday. The actual time of the accident is unknown. VanMeeteren was transported by the Sheldon Community Ambulance Team to Sanford Sheldon Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
