CORYDON — A Centerville man has died following an early morning accident east of Corydon.

A report released by the Iowa State Patrol Friday says that Paul Frost, 54, of Centerville, died in a two car accident on an ice covered Highway 2 approximately two miles east of Corydon.

Also injured in the accident was Travis Foster, 20, of Promise City. Foster was transported by ambulance to Wayne County Hospital. The extent of his injuries are unknown.

According to the crash report, Frost, driving a 1999 Saturn SC1, was driving westbound on Highway 2. Foster was driving a 1993 Nissan Shortbed and was traveling eastbound on the highway. Frost reportedly lost control on the ice covered roadway and crossed the centerline when his vehicle struck Foster’s car broadside.

The report states both drivers were wearing their seatbelt. The crash was reported at approximately 4:50 a.m. on Friday.

According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, the highway was closed for several hours due to the accident, but was reopened around 8 a.m.
