Authorities in northwest Iowa are now releasing the name of the man killed in a motorcycle accident on Sunday night.
According to Emmet County Sheriff Mike Martens, the sheriff’s office received a call around 8:30 p.m. from a person reporting a motorcycle accident south of Dolliver at the intersection of two county roads.
Martens says an investigation determined that a 2010 Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by 49-year-old Michael Ray Olson of rural Estherville was southbound from Dolliver when the motorcycle approached the T-intersection. The motorcycle crossed the intersection and then left the roadway, crashing into the south ditch and killing the driver.
