UPDATE: The Missouri man killed in a four-vehicle crash north of New Hampton last week has been identified as Mark Hill, 54, of Cameron, Mo., according to the Chickasaw County Sheriff's Office.

Hill was driving a 1999 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The other three people involved in the crash were Eric Buckendahl, 18, of Fort Atkinson, Wendy Ruiz, 24, of New Hampton and Clyde Han, 61, of Cameron, Mo.

Han was also driving a motorcycle, while Buckendahl was in a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox and Ruiz was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox.


A Missouri man was killed after a crash involving four vehicles Friday morning north of New Hampton.

The man, who has not yet been identified except as a Missouri man, died after his motorcycle and a silver Chevrolet Equinox collided on U.S. Hwy. 63 just after 9 a.m. Friday, according to the Chickasaw County Sheriff's Office.

According to deputies, a red or black SUV-type vehicle was stopped to turn left onto Mission Avenue from southbound Hwy. 63 when the driver of the Equinox, also driving south behind the SUV, didn't stop in time, striking the back end of the SUV.

After striking the SUV, the driver of the Equinox then entered the path of two northbound motorcycles, according to deputies.

The driver of one of the motorcycles, a 1999 Harley Davidson, was transported by New Hampton Ambulance and later died at Mercy Medical Center in New Hampton from his injuries.

The Chickasaw County Sheriff's Office says the red and black SUV they were looking for has been found and the driver identified.

Assisting in the investigation were the Iowa State Patrol, New Hampton First Responders, New Hampton Fire, Chickasaw County Rescue and New Hampton Police.
