A Postville teen escaped injury, when the tractor he was operating was struck by an SUV over the weekend.


The accident happened Saturday (Nov. 21) at about 3pm, on Locust Road in Highland Township in rural Winneshiek County, north of Decorah.

A tractor driven by 18 year old Collin Malcom, attempted to turn left into a driveway. It was struck by a Sport Utility Vehicle driven by 55 year old James Pickerill of Geneva, Illinois, when Pickerall tried to pass the tractor on the left. He apparently did not see Malcom's turn signal.

A passenger in Pickerill's SUV sustained minor injuries, and no ambulance was needed.

The total estimated damage was $17,500.
