State To Dedicate Bridge in Honor of Trooper


By Ellen Kurt

INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — State troopers, legislators and other officials will join to dedicate a bridge in central Iowa in honor of a trooper who died in a car crash near Indianola.

The ceremony will be held Thursday at the Indianola Fire Station, where officials will dedicate the Highway 65/69 South River Bridge in honor of trooper Mark Toney. The bridge is south of Indianola.

The event will mark the one year anniversary of the Sept. 20 crash that killed Toney.

Investigators determined he was traveling 115 to 120 mph and overcorrected before his squad car left the highway. Police haven't pinpointed why Toney was traveling so quickly or why his car's emergency lights were activated.
