JACKSON COUNTY, IOWA – An Iowa man was killed by a motorist after the car he was riding in struck a deer and he got out of the vehicle to inspect the damage.

The accident occurred on Friday evening, October 30, 2020 at about 6:56 PM in Jackson county. A 2016 Volkswagon Jetta driven by 19-year-old Paige Cupps of Dubuque was southbound on Highway 62 when a deer entered the road and was struck by the Jetta, which became disable and stopped in the northbound lane. A passenger in the Jetta, 23-year-old Matthew Bowling of Maquoketa, Iowa, left the vehicle to inspect the damage when he was struck by a north bound 2016 Chrysler 200 driven by 63-year-old Marjorie Hendrickson of Andrew, Iowa.

Bowling was thrown into the ditch and died as a result of the collision.

The accident remains under investigation.

The Iowa State Patrol was assisted by the Jackson county sheriff’s office, Andrew Fire and Maquoketa Ambulance.

    Not an accident. Could have been avoided by common sense and caution.

          Situational awareness. Knowing where you are and what is around you is one of the main keys to safety. It’s not paranoia. It’s merely common sense and caution.

            Tell me how it was an accident. Unless
            bowling an idiot, he should have realized that it was dangerous to be walking around a car at night in the road, and he must have been blind, or he would have seen the car in the road bearing down on him. People, leave your emotions out of it and think objectively.

            How was it an accident? He was standing right next to a car with flashers on while another truck was down the road flashing people to slow them down and she still ignored both vehicles and was speeding past. Mind you this same person did almost the same exact thing to someone else a couple years ago. Have some respect for friends and family of the deceased you just may never know who’s reading this.
