Witnesses sought in moped hit-and-run fatality

 

 

A 14-year-old Maynard boy was killed in a hit-and-run crash Thursday evening, June 28, and Fayette County Sheriff Marty Fisher is asking for information from any potential witnesses.

On Thursday, June 28, at approximately 10:08 p.m., the Fayette County Sheriff's Office received 911 calls of a moped accident on Highway 150 near 118th Street approximately two miles south of Fayette. 

Upon investigation by sheriff's deputies it was determined that the moped driver was Kaiden Estling, 14, of Maynard. It is believed that Estling was driving a blue 2016 Yongfu YN50QT-21 moped southbound on Highway 150 when he was struck by another vehicle. He then lost control of his moped and ended up near the west ditch.  The other vehicle fled the scene before deputies arrived. 

After multiple lifesaving attempts, Estling was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Fayette Police Department, West Union Police Department, Fayette Ambulance, and Fayette Fire Department. 

This hit-and-run accident remains under investigation by the Fayette County Sheriff's Technical Collision Investigator, who is also being assisted by an Iowa State Patrol Technical Collision Investigator. 

Sheriff Marty Fisher is asking any potential witnesses with a better description or an account of what happened to please come forward. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fayette County Sheriff's Office at (563) 422-6067.
