Two Injured In Highway 71 Accident

Both drivers were injured in a two-vehicle accident east of Storm Lake Tuesday afternoon.

Buena Vista County Sheriff Kory Elston says both vehicles were southbound on highway 71. A vehicle driven by 44-year-old Melanie Fetrow of Alta slowed to turn east onto 615th Street and was hit from behind by a vehicle driven by 21-year-old Wendy Kreft of Sac City.

Both drivers were treated at the scene by BVRMC paramedics… but were not taken to the hospital. Kreft was cited for failure to stop in a safe and assured distance. The sheriff’s office was assisted at the scene by the state patrol.
