Iowa driver dies in crash while leading high-speed chase

I found some leads. IN IOWA, MAN DIED ON CHRISTMAS DAY, CONTINUING TRAGIC TREND ON STATE HIGHWAYS. NEW AT SIX KCCI ETHAN HUMBLE SHOWS US WHAT LEADED TO THE FATAL ACCIDENT. ETHAN. WELL SINCE IT’S A FRIDAY, AT LEAST 364 PEOPLE HAVE DEAD IN CRASHES ON IOWA’S ROADS THIS YEAR. THIS ISSUE DOES NOT INCLUDE THIS ONE. Last night in Madison County. THIS is shaping up to be the deadliest year in more than five years. AND THIS IS WHY LAW ENFORCEMENT IS SUPPORTING MORE STRICT LAWS THAN EVER. NO BODY IS WANTED TO SEE WHAT IT SEES IN THESE ACCIDENTS. AROUND 6:30 MONDAY EVENING, CORY BROWN, OF CRESTON, DIED AFTER A HEAD CRASH WITH ANOTHER DRIVER JUST EAST OF WINTERSET ON ROUTE 92. THE OTHER DRIVER COLLIATED WITH BROWN WHILE ATTEMPTING TO PASS ANOTHER VEHICLE. ALTHOUGH THE INVESTIGATION IS STILL ONGOING, IOWA STATE PATROL SERGEANT ALEX DINKLA SAYS THE ACCIDENT WAS PROBABLY DRIVER ERROR. IT WAS A DANGEROUS PASSAGE BECAUSE THERE WERE STILL CARS ARRIVING AT THE OTHER DRIVER’S HOUSE IN THIS CASE. BUT THIS ACCIDENT IS JUST ONE OF MANY TRAFFIC-RELATED DEATHS. THIS YEAR, THE STATE OF IOWA WILL HAVE ON AVERAGE MORE THAN ONE DEATH EVERY DAY ON THE ROADS IN 2023. DINKLA SAYS ONE REASON FOR THIS HIGH FIGURE IS AN INCREASE IN PHONE USE WHILE DRIVING. WHY DO MOTORISTS LEAVE THEIR OWN LANE TO GO IN ANOTHER LANE? A LARGE PART OF THIS IS VERY LIKELY CONTRIBUTED TO THE DESTROY OF FACTIONS IN THE MOTOR VEHICLE. That’s why the State Patrol desperately wants stricter, hands-free laws. WE WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH FOR HANDS-FREE LEGISLATION, JUST AS WE HAVE OVER PAST YEARS. WE HAVE NOT SUCCEEDED IN DOING THIS, BUT I hope that by 2024 we can do it hands free here in IOWA. But until then, he urges all Iowans to do their part to keep the roads safe. WE CANNOT DO IT ALONE. WE NEED EVERY PERSON IN EVERY DRIVER AND MOTORIST TO DO THEIR PART TO ENSURE WE CONTINUE TO HAVE SAFE ROADS HERE IN IOWA. THE HANDS-FREE ACT WAS PASSED BY THE STATE SENATE DURING THE BILLION-MILLIONED SESSION BUT FAILED TO BECOME LAW. AND IT REMAINS UNCLEAR IF THE LAW WILL DO SO
