Update: ISP Identifies Deceased in Woodbury County Fatal Crash

Woodbury County, IOWA --- The Iowa State Patrol is investigating a fatality crash in Woodbury County that happened on Monday, May 21, 2012 on county road K45 just north of Sloan, Iowa.
At approximately 2:19 PM, an International straight truck driven by 23 year old Boe Jenkins of Sloan was northbound on county road K45 when a Chevy pickup crossed the center line and collided head on with the straight truck.  Jenkins had minor injuries and was treated at Mercy Hospital in Sioux City.  The driver of the pickup, now identified as 57 year old Randal Haveman of Whiting, Iowa, received fatal injuries.

A third vehicle driven by 22 year old Chad Carlson of Sloan swerved in an attempt to avoid the collision. Carlson’s vehicle came to rest in a field on the east side of the road.  He was uninjured.

The cause of the crash has yet to be determined as the Iowa State Patrol District 4 Office and the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office continue to investigate.
