The Fremont County Sheriff's Office responded to a fatality accident at the I-29 northbound off ramp at Highway 2 on Oct. 21, 2015. Roy David Walker, 45, of Omaha, Neb. was found, deceased, on the scene.
According to the Fremont County Sheriff's Office, at 7:39 a.m. on Oct. 21, 2015, they were dispatched to the scene of an accident for a vehicle in the ditch at the I-29 northbound off ramp at Highway 2.
Upon arrival, deputies and medical personnel located a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe in a field on the east side of the ramp. Roy David Walker, 45, of Omaha, Neb., was found, deceased, outside the vehicle.
Officials at the Sheriff's Office believe Walker was northbound on I-29 and missed the off-ramp. It appeared Walker attempted to maneuver to get on the off-ramp and lost control, rolling the vehicle. The Tahoe hit a sign and continued to roll, over a tree and the interstate fence, coming to rest in a field. Walker was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
The DCI Crime Laboratory in Ankeny will be performing an autopsy on Walker's body, and the investigation will continue.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Office was assisted at the scene by Percival and Sidney Fire and Rescue and the Fremont County Coroner's Office.
