FAIRFIELD — A Tuesday afternoon crash claimed the life of a Fairfield man.

The Iowa State Patrol reports the crash took place at 3:20 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 34 east of Cedar Avenue. A Ford puickup driven by Fred Clubb, 52, Batavia, and a Chevy Suburban driven by Neville Wiggins, 40, Fairfield, were both eastbound. Wiggins' vehicle rear-ended the pickup, then rolled into the south ditch.

The patrol says Wiggins was ejected and sustained fatal injuries. He was reportedly not wearing his seat belt.

The crash remains under investigation.
