MONTROSE – A Montrose resident died in a rollover accident Wednesday on White Plains Road southwest of Montrose.
Cody G. Westermeyer, 29, was northbound on White Plains Road at 10:06 p.m. driving a 1994 Chevy S-10 pickup truck when it left the road and entered the west ditch, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
The truck slid sideways and began to roll, rolling back on to the road and coming to rest on its top.
Westermeyer was ejected from the vehicle and received fatal head trauma.
Lee County EMS contacted a doctor at Keokuk Area Hospital who pronounced Westermeyer dead at the scene, said Chief Deputy Scott Bonar.
