Two-Vehicle Crash Causes Injuries In Fayette County
Officials have released details on a two-vehicle accident that left at least one person with injuries.
The crash happened Thursday around 10:45 AM at the intersection of Iowa Highway 150 and 190th Street, south of West Union.
According to Fayette County sheriff's officials, a vehicle driven by 50-year-old Brett Hanson of Waucoma pulled out onto the highway and failed to yield to the other vehicle, driven by 80-year-old Doris Howard of Elgin. Howard then struck the driver's side door of Hanson's vehicle, sending it into a ditch.
Only minor injuries occurred, but authorities didn't specify which driver -- or if both -- was hurt in the crash.
Records show Hanson was cited for failure to yield the right of way upon entering a highway.
