Rural Winterset Man Dies When Van Hits Rear of School Bus

Robert Jamison Jr., 29, rural Winterset, was injured fatally last Thursday afternoon, Sept. 12, when the van he was driving smashed into the rear of a Winterset school bus which had stopped on old Highway 169 several miles south of Winterset.

Jamison was pronounced dead at a Des Moines hospital after being transported by a Life Flight helicopter.

State Trooper Steve Ponsetto said 27 students were aboard the school bus at the time of the accident but none reported being injured following the collision. However, Ponsetto said he learned some of the students complained of “sore necks” on Friday morning.

Ponsetto said there were no brake marks from the van and that Jamison was apparently going about 55 miles per hour in the southbound van. The trooper said visibility was good at the time of the accident and that there was considerable distance on the highway for Jamison to have seen the school bus ahead.

Services for Mr. Jamison were held Monday afternoon at the First Christian Church in Winterset with John Safford and the Rev. Robert Brite officiating. Burial was at the Winterset Cemetery.

He was born in Winterset Nov. 2, 1955, the son of Robert and Callie Harrell Jamison. He was an electrical construction worker and a member of the Des Moines chapter of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

He was married to Barbara Siel in Winterset on Aug. 18, 1974.

Survivors include his wife; sons, Jay Scott and Curtis Wayne, both at home; a brother, James of Winterset; a sister, Cynthia Lynne Lee of Urbandale; and a grandfather, Paul Jamison of Urbandale.
