Man killed in vehicle accident

Patrick Clair GRIDLEY, age 65, of Fairfield died in a vehicle accident in rural eastern Wapello County early Tuesday morning.

According to the Iowa State Patrol report, Donald Dean GRIDLEY, 44, of Fairfield was driving a 1979 Ford pickup north on Compentine Road and failed to stop at a stop sign at the "T" intersection of Compentine Road and 165th Street. The vehicle entered the north ditch, striking a post at 3:27 a.m. Tuesday.

The report states Patrick GRIDLEY was transported by ambulance to Ottumwa Regional Health Center in Ottumwa.

It also states Donald GRIDLEY was transported by aircare to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City with possible injuries.

No information was available this morning from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics about GRIDLEY. Hospital personnel have explained having no information available could mean the person is not a patient at the hospital or the patient or family members did not or could not give permission for information to be released.

The Iowa State Patrol report lists neither man was using a seatbelt. Neither man was ejected or trapped in the pickup. The front of the pickup sustained disabling damage, estimated at $1,000.

According to the State Patrol report, a urine test for alcohol was given to Donald GRIDLEY; no drug test was given. The report listed the driver's condition as "under the influence of alcohol/drugs/medications."

According to the report, charges are pending.

Iowa State Patrol report also stated the accident is still under investigation.
