The Iowa State Patrol is asking motorists to keep an eye out for a semi-truck involved in a fatal accident on I-80 near Tiffin.

The accident happened just before 3:30 Thursday morning near the 238 mile marker of westbound I-80. Troopers say 34-year-old Rolando Calderon-Yescas of North Chicago, Illinois was standing on the passenger side of his truck when a semi struck the truck and him. Calderon-Yescas died at the scene.

Officials say the semi didn’t stop after the accident. The people inside Calderon-Yescas truck were sleeping at the time of the accident and were unable to provide a description of the semi. It should have front-end damage on the right.
