John Kilburg and Donelle Kilburg Die in a Rollover Accident Near Marion, Iowa

Marion, Iowa — Two people were killed when the seed truck they were traveling in rolled over. The incident happened Wednesday morning near Travis Road.

According to reports, the driver of a seed truck lost control of the vehicle, and the truck rolled over, trapping both occupants.

John Kilburg and his wife, Donelle Kilburg, both passed away from their injuries.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on fatal semi-truck rollover accidents

To lose not one but two family members at the same time is beyond incomprehensible. And what makes this incident disconcerting is that trucks generally don’t roll over, especially when operated by an experienced driver. Is there more to this accident? Did the truck experience tire failure or another mechanical issue that caused the trucker to lose control? These are questions the surviving family deserves answers to.

Trained professionals will need to conduct a thorough investigation to determine what caused this accident. If an unresolved mechanical issue caused the truck to malfunction or a defect is discovered, someone has to answer.

May the family of the deceased find some peace as they learn to navigate the painful journey ahead.
