Victim identified in Cedar Rapids crash


The man killed in a Cedar Rapids car crash Monday afternoon has been identified as 45 year old John Aldershof.

Aldershof of Cedar Rapids was driving eastbound on Mt. Vernon Road when he passed Adam Gorsh, 26, of Palo. Aldershof pulled in front of Gorsh and crossed the center lane into westbound traffic. Aldershof then hit Mark Vislisel, 48, of Mt. Vernon in his grain truck in the westbound lane.

Vislisel's vehicle pushed Aldershof's vehicle into Gorsh's vehicle, causing the three car accident that closed the road for much of the afternoon.

Aldershof was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured.
