Dubuque County Fatal Accident

Dubuque County authorities have released the names of those involved in a fatal crash Friday afternoon on Sundown Road. The sheriff’s department reports that 17-year old Jaycee M. Payne of Marion died in that accident. Payne was the passenger of a vehicle driven by 17-year old Oliver Clanin of Cedar Rapids. Clanin was traveling south when he lost control of his vehicle on an ice covered area on the roadway. The vehicle slid sideways across the center line and into the northbound lane of Sundown Road into the path of a vehicle driven by 46-year old Michael McArthur of Asbury. McArthur was unable to avoid the collision with the Clanin vehicle and struck the Clanin vehicle on the passenger’s side. Clanin was transported to Finley Hospital in Dubuque and was later transferred to the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City for treatment of serious injuries. McArthur was taken to Finley Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Sundown Road was closed for approximately 2 1/2 hours due to the collision. The accident remains under investigation.
