Fatal crash in Lee County

Iowa State Patrol released a crash report regarding the fatal crash from Saturday. 

Troopers said it happened at 8:34 p.m just north of Fort Madison, on Business 61, right before the on-ramp to the bypass.

The report said Randy Carter, 64, of Fort Madison was riding his motorcycle when he tried to cross both lanes of traffic to enter a private drive located on the east of the highway.

Troopers said Carter failed to yield to a Chevy Silverado that was driven by Jonathon Witt, 29, of Burlington, Iowa. 

The report said the pickup truck hit Carter and both vehicles came to a rest in the median.  

The report said Carter was later pronounced dead at the scene by the Lee County Coroner and he was transported to King-Lynk Funeral Home in Fort Madison. 

Wever Volunteer Fire Department assisted on the scene.
