Sibley man dies in Friday rollover crash


SIBLEY, Iowa — A 64-year-old Sibley man died Friday as a result of a vehicle rollover crash.

The Osceola County Sheriff's Office stated in a press release that it received a report of a vehicle rollover on 250th Street east of Vine Avenue. A 2001 Ford Explorer operated by Joel Michael Kruger was eastbound on 250th Street. It appeared the Explorer dropped off the paved portion of the road onto the shoulder and lost control while trying to get back on to the road.

The Explorer then overturned in the south ditch and came to rest on its wheels. Kruger was fatally injured.

The Iowa State Patrol, Sibley Ambulance and May City Fire Department assisted at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.
