Emmetsburg Icy Accident

 Emmetsburg, IA (KICD) — One person received possible injuries in a two vehicle accident, due to icy conditions.
  The Emmetsburg Police said the accident occurred Wednesday, as Ronald Bulick of Worthington, Minnesota was eastbound in the 3500 block of Main Street in a 2002 Buick, when he slid out of control.  A 2005 Ford Taurus, driven by Alexis Phelps of Spencer was behind the Buick.  Phelps tried to slow down, and lost control of her vehicle, sliding off the roadway, then colliding with a westbound 2004 Chevy Trailblazer, driven by John Arp of Mason City, who was already slowing down and on the shoulder trying to avoid the collision.
  The Taurus and Trailblazer collided, and slid off the road.  The Buick kept going, but was stopped later.  A 13-year old passenger in the Trailblazer was injured, and was taken to the Palo Alto County Hospital by ambulance for possible injuries. Neither driver was injured.
  Damage to the Taurus was estimated at $3500, while the Trailblazer had an estimated $4000 in damages.  Charges are pending further investigation.  Assisting at the scene was the Palo Alto County Sheriffs Department, and Palo Alto County Ambulance.
