Muscatine County Attorney Alan R. Ostergren has announced the arrest of a 52-year-old man in connection with an Aug. 12 bicycle crash that claimed the life of firefighter Devin Estabrook.
The incident happened in the area of 41st Street South and Grandview Avenue. Estabrook, a Grandview firefighter, was cycling in the area when he was struck. He later died from his injuries.
Authorities have charged Terry Gough, 52, of Morning Sun, Iowa for the offense of leaving the scene of a fatality accident, the county attorney’s office said in a news release. The criminal complaint alleges that Gough was the operator of a commercial motor vehicle which struck Estabrook. The complaint further alleges that Gough did not stop and render aid as required by law, and that he later drove past the scene again when emergency vehicles were present investigating the incident.
Leaving the scene of a fatality accident is a class “D” felony punishable by a prison term of not to exceed five years and a fine of between $750 and $7,500.
Gough was arrested without incident and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Oct. 25 at 9 a.m.
