Highway 18 Accident

Spencer, IA (KICD) — No injuries were reported in an accident involving a car and a tractor.

On Thursday afternoon, the Clay County Sheriffs Office responded to an accident at the intersection of Highway 18 and 270th Avenue.  38-year old Jason Flene of Emmetsburg was driving a 2005 Buick RDV eastbound, and was attempting to pass a John Deere tractor, driven by 25-year old Tyler Heck.

As Flene was passing the tractor, he realized the tractor was making a left turn onto 270th Avenue, resulting in Flene driving the Buick into the north ditch, travelling over a concrete culvert, causing $1500 in damage to Buick.

Flene was cited for Passing Contrary to Highway Markings.
