Two Vehicles Collide At US 75 & 24th St. SW

(Le Mars) --- Two vehicles collided at the junction of Business Highway 75 and 24th Street Southwest which backed up traffic in both directions for several minutes.  The accident occurred Monday afternoon at about 4:30 p.m. The two vehicles involved was a van driven by 71 year old Arthur Krull of Le Mars, and a pickup truck owned by McCormick Distributing and driven by 20 year old Jacob Schneider of Le Mars.  Apparently, the Schneider vehicle was wanting to make a left hand turn and was stopped on the highway, waiting for traffic to clear when Krull did not notice the pickup was stopped.  The van hit the back of the pickup truck.  Krull was injured in the collision, and was airlifted via helicopter to Mercy Medical Center of Sioux City.  The Le Mars Fire and Rescue Department was called upon to help remove Krull from the vehicle.  Also responding to the accident were the Le Mars Ambulance, Le Mars Police Department, and Plymouth County Sheriff's Office.  Rescue workers were on the scene for nearly an hour.  The Le Mars Police Department is investigating the accident.
