Man Struck by Vehicle While Checking the Mailbox

County Road 103 was the location of a truck vs. man accident in Lee County on November 9th. Just before 8:00am, a 2017 GMC truck was eastbound from West Point and approaching a residence at 2431 County Road 103.

At that time, a male pedestrian, 65 year old Jayme Boeding, crossed the roadway from his residence on the north to get to his mailbox on the south side of the roadway. It seems he failed to recognize the vehicle barreling towards him from the west. He was struck in the eastbound lane of travel and was transported by Lee County EMS and Air Evac to the University of Iowa Hospital.
