A rural Estherville man was killed early Wednesday morning as a result of a single vehicle traffic accident.
Emmet County Sheriff Mike Martens reports that at 6:57 a.m. Wednesday, his office received a call of a vehicle on its top in a cornfield approximately three miles southeast of Estherville in the 2100 block of 410th Avenue.
Upon investigation, authorities determined that the northbound 1999 Ford driven by 34-year-old Jayson Irvin Haukoos or Estherville left the roadway on 410th Avenue and entered the west ditch and adjacent cornfield where it overturned.
Haukoos was pronounced dead at the scene.
Martens said the accident remains under investigation.
