A 24-year-old man was killed in a one-vehicle accident early Sunday morning in northern Mills County.
Investigators for the Iowa State Patrol determined Jake William Champ of Clarinda was driving a 2007 Ford Fusion northbound on 221st Street (old U.S. Highway 275) north of Glenwood, between Ashton Road and Bunge Ave., when the driver lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons. The vehicle left the roadway, going off a steep embankment on the east side of the highway before striking several trees, rolling and landing on its top.
The driver was trapped inside the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene around 6:40 a.m. He was wearing a seat belt.
