O'Brien Sheriff 71-6O’Brien County, Iowa — A Sheldon teen received minor injuries an accident where a combine drove over his hood on Monday, November 4 in O’Brien County.

The O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 5:55 PM, 19-year-old Bradley Zybarth of Sheldon was eastbound on 330th Street in a 1994 Dodge. Sixty-one-year-old Warren Anderson of Spirit Lake was westbound on 330th in a 2013 John Deere combine.

Zybarth approached a bridge as the combine was crossing the bridge headed westbound. He stopped on the south edge of the roadway a safe distance from the bridge to allow the westbound combine room to navigate through the bridge and continue westbound. As the combine continued westbound, the report says Anderson failed to yield half the roadway and collided head on with Zybarth’s car. The left front outside dual wheel of the combine drove up over the hood of the Dodge before coming to a stop.

Zybarth was listed as having minor injuries but was not transported to a medical facility.

Zybarth’s Dodge was totaled, with $2000 damage.

Anderson’s John Deere combine was not damaged.

Anderson was charged with Failure to Yield Half of the Roadway When Meeting a Vehicle.
