Humboldt man dies in Webster County collision

Fort Dodge woman airlifted to Des Moines

BADGER — A Humboldt man is dead and a Fort Dodge woman seriously injured following a three-vehicle accident about two and a half miles west of Badger Monday night.

The Iowa State Patrol identified the man as David Fliehe, of Humboldt.

According to the Iowa State Patrol, Aisha Ismail, 24, of Fort Dodge, was westbound on Webster County Road C56 around 11:44 p.m. Monday. She was driving a 2006 Land Rover.

Ismail then started to pass a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by Michael Heuck, 51, of Spencer, which was pulling a car trailer.

As Ismael was passing Heuck’s pickup, she collided head-on with an eastbound Dodge Neon, driven by Fliehe.

The collision caused Ismael’s Land Rover to be pushed into the driver’s side of Heuck’s trailer.

Fliehe’s Neon ended up in the south ditch, where it was facing south. Ismael’s Land Rover rolled onto its side and then ended up on its top in the south ditch.

Heuck’s pickup stayed on the road and was able to stop without further problems.

Fliehe was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ismail was airlifted to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines from UnityPoint Health — Trinity Regional Medical Center, with what the Iowa State Patrol called “serious injuries.”

The collision remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.

The Webster County Sheriff’s Department, Badger Fire Department, Vincent Fire and Rescue, Fort Dodge Fire Department ambulance, Webster County Medical Examiner and Mid Iowa Towing all assisted on scene.
