A Fairfield man is dead after a vehicle-pedestrian accident that occurred around 7 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Ninth Street and Burlington Avenue.

Fairfield Police Officers were initially called to the scene of the accident where Thomas CALHOUN, 71, of Fairfield, was struck by 28-year-old Bryce Edmonds, also of Fairfield.

"The Iowa State Patrol is investigating the accident," said Capt. Colin Smith of the Fairfield Police Department.

Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies were also on the scene.

According to the Iowa State Patrol crash report, Edmonds was traveling westbound on Burlington Avenue at North Ninth Street, when CALHOUN crossed into the intersection.
