Early Monday morning, a passing motorist noticed debris on a Plymouth County road. The motorist contacted the Plymouth County Sheriff’s office, and when a deputy arrived at the scene, he discovered that a vehicle had struck the bridge railing and the vehicle was on its top in the creek.
The driver of the vehicle is identified as 49-year-old Kevin Fant of Ireton. Fant was transported to a Le Mars hospital where a preliminary exam was conducted by the Plymouth County Medical Examiner.
Investigators were able to determine that the vehicle was northbound on county road K-18 when it approached a curve in the road and Fant failed to make the curve and left the roadway, striking a guardrail, which sent the vehicle airborne and striking the creek embankment.
