(Superior)-- An accident this (Tuesday) morning just west of the intersection of County Road A22 and 370th Avenue near the Dickinson-Emmet county line claimed the life of an Estherville man.

The Iowa State Patrol says 36-year-old Kory Doll of Estherville was driving a 2010 Chevrolet Express Van westbound on County Road A22, which collided with 70-year-old Gary Long of Estherville, who was standing next to his bicycle on the side of the road. Troopers say there was a vehicle in front of Doll that obstructed his view. Troopers say that vehicle swerved to avoid hitting Long, but Doll was unable to react in time and collided with Long, who was pronounced dead on the scene. 

The Iowa State Patrol was assisted by the Emmet and Dickinson County Sheriff's Offices along with the Estherville Fire Department.

The mishap took place around 8:30 am.
