Muscatine County Attorney Alan R. Ostergren announced that an arrest has been made in the August 12, 2019, death of a bicyclist.

On August 12, 2019, Muscatine Police Department and Iowa State Patrol responded to the area of 41st Street South and Grandview Avenue for a report of a bicyclist who had apparently been struck by a motor vehicle. The bicyclist, Devin Estabrook, later died from his injuries.

Charges have now been filed against TERRY GOUGH, 52, of Morning Sun, Iowa for the offense of leaving the scene of a fatality accident. The criminal complaint alleges that GOUGH was the operator of a commercial motor vehicle which struck Estabrook. The complaint further alleges that GOUGH did not stop and render aid as required by law. The complaint further alleges that GOUGH later drove past the scene again when emergency vehicles were present investigating the incident.

Leaving the scene of a fatality accident is a class “D” felony punishable by a prison term of not to exceed five years and a fine of between $750 and $7,500.

GOUGH was arrested without incident on this charge. His next court date is a preliminary hearing scheduled for October 25, 2019, at 9:00 a.m.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation. The defendant is presumed to be innocent.
