A resident of the neighborhood said, “He doesn’t live in any of these houses, we don’t know him. He just came around the curve and kept going.”

A male and a female were in the vehicle when it struck a tree.  The female suffered minor injuries.  The driver was identified by Mason City Police as Keith Kock, age 50, of Mason CIty.  The female passenger was identified as Kimberly Swnason, age 47 also of Mason City.  Officers were assisted at the scene by the Mason City Fire Department.  Both subjects were transported to Mercy Medical Center.  The male driver was unconscious and appeared to have suffered a medical emergency prior to the collision.  The condition of the subjects was not available, and the nvestigation is on-going.

    Was this a Medical PROBLEM/CONDITION or Medical INJURY? The gg reports that he had a medical INJURY prior to the accident. This seems odd. The officers on scene told people to back away from the CRIME SCENE.

      This man was a friend of my family. We are hearing that he had a heart attack prior to hitting the tree. Very sad, very nice man.

    Too much speed for the slick roads. People need to learn how to drive in this weather.

      He died from a medical condition before the accident. Slick roads had nothing to do with it.
