Monticello Man Is Killed While Walking on Road

ANAMOSA—August William Stahlberg, 54, Monticello Route 2, was killed when he was struck by a car as he walked along highway 151 north of Monticello Sunday about 12:35 a.m.
Authorities identified the driver of the car as John F. Bohlken of Scotch Grove.
Bohlken said Stahlberg stepped in front of the car and was thrown into the air, crashing through the car's windshield.
Bohlken and a passenger, Walter Balster, escaped injury.
Bohlken said he failed to see Stahlberg step onto the pavement from the shoulder of the highway because he was watching the lights of an approaching car.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Wayne Zion Lutheran church. Burial will be in Wayne cemetery. The body is at the Goettsch funeral home.
