Making an illegal U-turn on Interstate 29 in southwest Iowa’s Mills County proved to be a fatal mistake for a Nebraska man.
The Iowa State Patrol reports 74-year-old John L. Agnew of Omaha was killed yesterday morning when he attempted a U-turn in a construction zone along I-29 at the 15 mile marker.
Agnew was southbound in the head to head construction zone when he pulled onto the shoulder and attempted the U-turn. He was struck by a semi-truck driven by 37-year-old Ruben Monge of Omaha and was killed instantly.
The accident remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
