A car driven by 26 year old Jessica Jepsen-Rupp of Decorah, along with a car driven by 73 year old Phyllis Fosaan of West Union, were traveling southbound, when they slowed near the intersection. Those 2 vehicles were struck by an SUV driven by 21 year old Anthony Williams of Victoria, Minnesota, that failed to slow down, and went out of control because of the weather/road conditions.

Four people sustained minor injuries, and were treated at the West Union hospital. Williams' and Rupp's vehicles were totaled, and Fosaan's car had $1,500 in damage.
Williams is being charged with Following too Close.

The Fayette County Sheriff was assisted by the West Union Fire Department, along with Gunderson and Postville Ambulance Services.
