Graettinger Accident

Graettinger, IA (KICD) — A Bancroft female is injured in a one vehicle accident near Graettinger.

Around 7:25 Sunday evening, the Palo Alto County Sheriffs Office received the report of a single vehicle accident, just south of Graettinger.  Macie Foster was northbound on Highway 4 in the 3100 block, in a  2000 Buick Century.  As Foster continued north, the right tires went off the roadway, and she overcorrected, causing Foster to lose control of the Buick.   It went across the road and entered the west ditch, then rolling over and coming to rest in a field.

Foster was transported to Palo Alto County Hospital by ambulance to be treated for non-incapacitating injuries.  The Buick was considered a total loss.
