Doon, Iowa — On September 30th, 2012 at approximately 4:57 P.M., Stephanie L. Mortimore (49 years old) of Lennox, South Dakota was westbound on County Road A-52 (260th Street).
Vera E. Knobloch (74 years old) of Lester, Iowa was northbound on County Road K-52 (Hickory Avenue). Knobloch had stopped at the stop sign and waited for a non-contact vehicle from the west to turn south on K-52. She then proceeded into the intersection and into the path of Mortimore. Mortimore attempted to get around Knobloch, but Knobloch’s vehicle still struck the rear driver’s side of Mortimore’s vehicle. This caused Mortimore’s vehicle to go into a 180 degree spin and come to a rest, facing east in the westbound lane of A-52. Knobloch’s vehicle continued north and came to a rest on the shoulder of the road.
Mortimore’s 2000 Buick Regal sustained approximately $5000 in damages and Knobloch’s 2010 Chevy Impala sustained approximately $3500 in damages. Knobloch was cited for Failure to Yield Upon Entering a Thru Highway.
