KEOKUK, IOWA – An Iowa man is behind bars after allegedly killing two people on a stopped motorcycle by driving drunk and plowing into them.

On August 4, 2020, Lee County deputies and Iowa State Patrol Troopers responded to Highway 2 east of Donnellson, Iowa, for a three-vehicle collision. An investigation determined that a silver 2005 Nissan Frontier, operated by Chad Ray Davis of Donnellson, was traveling east on Highway 2 when he failed to maintain control and struck a stationary 2014 Harley-Davidson motorcycle operated by Michael Dean Horn. Horn and his passenger, identified as Linda Sue Horn, were stopped in the eastbound lane of traffic at a construction project. This collision then caused the motorcycle to strike the rear end of a stationary 2021 Mack truck that was also stopped in the eastbound lane. The impacts resulted in the immediate deaths of Michael and Linda Horn.

On August 26, 2020, Chad Davis was taken into custody without incident in Donnellson. Mr. Davis was charged with two counts of Homicide by Vehicle, Operating Under the Influence, Failure to Maintain Control, Driving While License Suspended, and Failure to File SR-22 Insurance. Davis is being held at the Lee County Correctional Center.

Many agencies assisted in the investigation: Iowa State Patrol, Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Lee County Ambulance, Iowa Department of Motor Vehicle Enforcement, Iowa DOT Maintenance, Donnellson Police Department, Donnellson Fire Department, and the Lee County Attorney’s Office.

DAVIS, CHAD RAY

        The “rioters” (ignorant term, btw) haven’t committed murders by negligence or by intent. Wise up.

          “The “rioters” (ignorant term, btw) haven’t committed murders by negligence or by intent. Wise up.”

          So, when they have stabbed,beaten,shot,tried to kill by using fireworks with “shrapnel” taped to them, they weren’t intending to kill, nor were they negligent?
          What about the woman from Dubuque, she was walking back to her car and took a bullet in the back, from a rioter. How about the 1 year old that was killed in their stroller by a bullet fired by, according to the way you seem to want to look at things, a responsible peaceful protester. Or, how about Micheal Dorn, MURDERED by one of the thieving rioters?

          What about the people that won’t bow down to the BS these thug RIOTERS are pushing? You know, like the people that are beaten because they won’t kiss BLM/ANTIFA ass?

          At best your comment was VERY weak, at worst, it showed how far out of touch with the real woeld you are.

          They tried to kill kyle rittenhouse. You’re an idiot. Burning down cities and destroying lives and property is rioting. You seem like a special needs person to me. Maybe keep your little opinion off the internet because you’re a moronic halfwit.
