Little Rock, Iowa — A Harrisburg, SD teen was taken to a hospital after a crash east of Little Rock on Saturday morning, March 10th, 2018.

The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 11:10 a.m., 16-year-old Violet Rose Den Hoed of Harrisburg, SD was driving a 2011 Dodge Avenger eastbound on Highway 9 near the Osceola/Lyon County line. They report that 67-year-old David Marvin Amendt of Sutherland was driving westbound on 9 in a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta.

According to the deputy’s report, Amendt lost control of his vehicle, which started to spin into the eastbound lane. Den Hoed attempted to avoid the Amendt vehicle but they ended up colliding in the middle of the roadway.

The Den Hoed Avenger broadsided the Jetta as Amendt attempted to regain control of the vehicle. The Amendt Jetta entered the north ditch and the Den Hoed Avenger was left disabled in the middle of the roadway.

The Little Rock Ambulance took Den Hoed to the Osceola Community Hospital in Sibley.

The Sheriff’s Office says Den Hoed’s Avenger received about $6,000 in damage and Amendt’s Jetta received about $5,000 in damage.
