Two Seriously Injured After Head On Collision In Fayette County [PHOTO]
The temperature is dropping which means the roads are getting more slick. As we start to head toward the winter season, it’s just as important to be mindful of icy roads.
On Monday, two people were seriously injured in an accident involving a pickup, semi, and an icy road.
Monday morning at around 10:11 AM, the Fayette County dispatch received a 911 call after two vehicles were involved in an accident. The accident happened just northeast of Sumner on County Road V-68 between 170th and 165th street.
The Fayette County Sheriff's Office and Iowa State Patrol arrived on the scene and discovered that a 2016 Chevy truck had been hit head-on by a semi-truck. The Chevy lost control from the icy roadway.
There were two people in the Chevy when it was hit.
The two people in the Chevy were transported to the Sumner Hospital with serious injuries. The semi-driver was uninjured.
As of now, no names connected to the accident have been released as the Iowa State Patrol investigates the accident and the status of the injured people is known.
