A Peterson, Iowa, man, formerly of Prairie du Chien, died Saturday, June 6, after he was struck while working on a disabled vehicle along a Clay County, Iowa, road.
The Iowa State Patrol reported that Steven Kozelka, 37, was working on a car Saturday evening that was disabled on the edge of County Road M27 near 490th Street, between Peterson and Everly. Another vehicle faced that car, as Kozelka was working to jump-start the battery.
The report said the teenage driver of a southbound car on County Road M27 struck one of the cars, which bounced to hit the third vehicle.
Kozelka died from injuries associated with the collision of the vehicles. Authorities have made no charges and are investigating to determine which vehicle struck Kozelka.
The teen driver was taken to Spencer Hospital in Spencer with undisclosed injuries.
