One Dead, One Hurt in Des Moines Single-Vehicle Crash

The Des Moines Police Department has reported that one man has lost his life while another sustained injuries during a single-vehicle accident that occurred at around 2:40 a.m. last Sunday, July 3.

The passenger, a 23-year-old man from Des Moines, was declared dead at the scene of the accident while the vehicle’s driver, a 24-year-old man from Cedar Rapids had to be confined in a hospital for the treatment of his critical injuries.

According to preliminary investigations, the vehicle struck a traffic signal pole after the driver lost control of the vehicle at an intersection just north of downtown Des Moines. Bystanders pulled the two men out of the vehicle before it erupted into flames.

The thoughts of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. go out to both victims’ families.
