Nicholas Dietz Killed in Highway 346 Rollover Accident

CHICKASAW COUNTY, Iowa—Nicholas Dietz, a 43-year-old Nashua man, tragically lost his life Feb. 7 in a rollover crash on Iowa Highway 346.

According to local authorities, Dietz was driving a pickup truck west on Highway 346 at about 10 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle near Hickory Avenue due to poor road surface conditions. The pickup truck veered off the roadway and rolled before coming to rest on its roof.

Dietz was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. A passenger in his vehicle was transported to a local hospital to treat injuries.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing. No additional information has been released.

Commentary on the Truck Accident that killed Nicholas Dietz

I am sorry to learn of another rollover accident that claimed the life of Nicholas Dietz at the young age of 43. I am angered that these deaths still occur despite auto manufacturers’ ability to reduce and even eliminate them from happening.

The Dietz family deserves answers to the questions that flow from this tragic accident. Mainly, the Dietz family deserves to know what steps the auto manufacturer took to protect Mr. Dietz in the event of a rollover accident. Rollover accidents occur every day on our roadways. Rollover accidents are one of the leading causes of death in single-vehicle accidents. Rollover accidents are preventable. Rollover accidents do not have to lead to death. In fact, technology from the 90s has proven adequate to reduce deaths significantly. There is a reason some auto manufacturers have a much higher death rate than others. I fight with auto manufacturers every day that put profits over people at the expense of innocent victims.

I am not alleging this auto manufacturer did anything wrong. However, given the significant loss the Dietz family has experienced from this tragic accident, it is only fair they receive answers to their questions. The details surrounding this accident need to be investigated.

I pray the Dietz family can find solace during this challenging time and peace in the months and years to come.
