FERGUSON — An investigation is under way into a single-vehicle accident that claimed the life of a Kellogg man Wednesday afternoon in southeast Marshall County.

Sgt. Nate Ludwig of the Iowa State Patrol told the Times-Republican that the driver, Mark Haunsperger, 67, was traveling eastbound on 290th Street, about one mile west of Ferguson, when he lost control of his vehicle and went into a ditch near the intersection of 290th and Sanford Avenue.

Haunsperger was the lone occupant of the vehicle. When emergency personnel arrived, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
