Argos Man was Impaired at the Time of Fatal Accident

The results of a toxicology test taken on an Argos man who was killed in a moped accident on Saturday, August 25 have been released.

Marshall County Coroner Bill Cleavenger indicated that Jack R. Moriarty tested positive for alcohol and drugs at the time of the accident.

Moriarty crashed his moped into a fence post on 19th road in Marshall County Saturday. He was ejected from the moped and was not wearing a helmet. He died instantly from blunt force trauma. Cleavenger said there was evidence at the scene that Moriarty was impaired at the time of the accident but testing had to be done to confirm that finding.
