A Sioux Center man was killed in a head-on collision Monday in northwest Iowa. The Iowa State Patrol reports about 3:45 P.M., 26-year-old Oscar Rodriguez of Sioux Center was northbound on K30, five miles south of Rock Valley, a half-mile north of B30 — the Carmel blacktop — in a 2000 Cadillac Escalade.
Thirty-year-old Milton Timmer of Sioux Center was southbound on K30 in a 2005 Peterbilt semi. Rodriguez crossed the center line and struck the semi. Rodriguez died as the result of injuries sustained in the accident. No injuries to any other people were listed on the report.
No vehicle damage estimate was available in the trooper’s initial report. The Sioux County Sheriff, Rock Valley Police Department, Rock Valley Fire and EMS and the Iowa D.O.T. assisted the Iowa State Patrol at the scene. The investigation continues.
