KCCI reports that 61-year-old Reverend Irvin Lewis, Sr., “was injured on June 28 when his motorcycle hit a road closed sign on Army Post Road at Southeast 4th Street.” His injuries included a “fractured collar bone and broken ribs,” according to KCCI.
According to police, Rev. Lewis suffered from a collapsed lung and unmanageable pain, which impeded his recovery. On July 5, the Reverend died.
Army Post Road was closed yesterday evening for investigation. KCCI reports that, “A police report on the accident indicated the road closed sign had blown into the west bound lanes of Army Post because it had not been properly secured with sand bags.” Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the motorcycle accident victim.
