An accident this morning in southwest Iowa’s Taylor County has claimed the life of a Lenox man.
The Iowa State Patrol says 57-year-old Joe Alvin Goldner died at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr, after the SUV he was driving went out of control on an ice-covered road and rolled three-times, into a ditch south of Clearfield.
The accident happened at around 7:05 a.m. as Goldner was traveling south on Highway 25 in his 1994 Chevy Blazer. Officials say the man was wearing his seatbelt. The crash remains under investigation.
