According to the Iowa State Patrol, the accident occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, June 19, at the intersection of 390th Street and Iowa Highway Four south of Emmetsburg. A 1999 Mack dump truck, owned by Reding Gravel and Excavating of Algona and driven by 47-year old John Aris Morey of Livermore, was eastbound on 390th Street and a 2004 Freightliner Columbia semi tractor-trailer, owned and driven by 31-year old Nathan Robert Mohr of Lake View was traveling southbound on Iowa Highway Four.

The dump truck driven by Morey approached the intersection of 390th Street and Highway Four and failed to yield the right of way from the stop sign, and proceeded into the path of the southbound semi. The two vehicles collided in the intersection and the dump truck flipped over onto the driver's side and came to rest on the south side of the intersection, facing west. The semi proceeded south and came to rest in the east ditch just south of the intersection.
