Fatal Jackson County Accident

Lakefield, IA (KICD)–A Lakefield man was found dead inside a partially submerged vehicle following a Friday evening accident.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year-old Cassidy Voss was heading west on County Road 10 when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. His 2005 Mazda then entered the south ditch where it struck an approach leading to the lake shore. The vehicle then vaulted into some shoreline trees and came to rest partially submerged in Clear Lake next to a dock. Authorities received word of the vehicle shortly before 7:00 p.m. but it remains undetermined when the accident occurred.

Lakefield Police and the Minnesota State Patrol assisted on scene. The accident remains under investigation
