Arlington man killed, Oelwein man injured in garbage truck crash


SMITHFIELD -- An Arlington man was killed after his vehicle was hit by a garbage truck in rural Fayette County, officials say.

Cody Bushaw, 48, of Arlington was driving a 2004 Chevrolet pick-up westbound on 80th Avenue in Smithfield when a Black Hawk Waste Disposal garbage truck driven by Patrick Schanbeck, 32, of Oelwein driving northbound on J Avenue failed to yield at the intersection, according to the Iowa State Patrol.

The impact caused Bushaw's pick-up to roll into the east ditch. The garbage truck came to rest in the west ditch, according to the patrol.

Bushaw was pronounced dead at the scene. The report did not specify if he was wearing a seat belt.
