Iowan dies in ATV accident near Oskaloosa

Posted:

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say an eastern Iowa man died after his all-terrain vehicle was hit from behind by a car that came over a hill and couldn't stop in time.

Seventy-seven-year-old Joseph Holub, of What Cheer, was killed on Tuesday near Oskaloosa.

The Iowa State Patrol says Holub was driving west on a road and the ATV was partially on the highway and partially on the shoulder.

The patrol says a westbound car came over a hill and the driver saw Holub but couldn't stop in time and the car hit the back of the ATV.
