NEW VIRGINIA — An Iowa City man was killed Friday evening while checking damage to a vehicle he was in that had just struck a deer and become disabled on Interstate 35, according to the Iowa State Patrol.
Steven Kohli, 69, was a passenger in a Lincoln MKC compact sport utility vehicle being driven by Michael Kohli, 66, on southbound Interstate 35. At about 7:25 p.m., an hour after sunset, the vehicle struck a deer and became disabled in the outside lane, near mile marker 45, in the southwest corner of Warren County.
Steven got out to look at the damage and was struck and killed by a pickup truck driven by 69-year-old Terrence Sack of Pequot Lakes, Minn. Sack was trying to drive around on the right side of the SUV because of vehicles in the left lane, according to the crash report.
