Local man in serious condition after rollover

A single auto rollover Monday morning has left a Marshalltown man with potentially life threatening injuries.

Marshall County Chief Jailer Steve Hoffman said a driver along Highway 30 called the sheriff’s office with a report that a tire was in the road at mile marker 182.

When the deputy arrived, he found that a pickup truck had spun from the road while heading west and landed in an embankment. Inside was Heriberto Lopez, 38.

“Due to the surface conditions (Monday) morning, it appears the driver lost control and rolled the vehicle and sustained some serious injuries,” Hoffman said.

Hoffman said he is unaware of how fast Lopez was driving but that he was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Marshalltown Area Paramedic Services transported Lopez to Marshalltown Medical & Surgical Center where his condition was not released at press time.

Police scanner traffic Monday indicated that drifting snow and poor road conditions contributed to several auto crashes throughout the day and especially during the evening commute.

Marshalltown, Haverhill and Laurel Fire Departments assisted the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office on scene.
