The Iowa State Patrol says 29-year-old Nicholas Holtapp of Pomeroy died early Sunday morning as the result of a one-vehicle accident on Calhoun County Road D-11, west of Pomeroy. Reportedly a westbound 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Holtapp crossed the centerline and began to enter the south ditch. The truck then swerved back across the roadway and overturned in the north ditch. Holtapp was pronounced dead at the accident scene.
The accident remains under investigation.
