CEDAR COUNTY, Iowa -- A Waterloo teenager died Sunday when he flipped an ATV.

The Cedar County Sheriff's Office took a report Sunday afternoon that 19-year-old Nicholas C. Herman was taking down deer stands west of Buchanan and had not come home.

A search party comprised of members of the sheriff's office, state patrol, Iowa Division of Natural Resources, Cedar County Conservation, Tipton, Mechanicsville, West Branch and West Liberty fire departments and family and friends found Herman's truck in the area. Authorities later found an ATV located at the top of a steep incline. It appeared as though the ATV had flipped onto Herman.

Herman was pronounced dead at the scene.
