MARSHALL COUNTY, Iowa — A Des Moines man is dead after he crashed into a creek in Marshall County on New Year’s Eve.

Bazirake Kariya, 30, was driving on Highway 330 in Marshall County Friday when his vehicle crashed into a creek, according to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to the crash just after 2 p.m. and found Kariya trapped inside the vehicle. First responders administered emergency first aid. Medics transported Kariya to a hospital in Marshalltown, but he died from his injuries.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office believes weather-related road conditions contributed to the crash. Freezing rain on Friday caused roadways to be covered with ice in areas of Marshall County.
