On Friday, September 28, the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office cited Jacob Bickett for failure to yield half of roadway upon meeting vehicle.
Hull, Iowa — Three people were taken to hospitals, and two trucks and one SUV were damaged in an accident on Thursday morning (9/27) northwest of Hull.
The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office reports that 21-year-old Jacob Bickett of Beresford, SD was driving a 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 utility truck southbound on Highway 75, four miles northwest of Hull. Bickett reported he fell asleep and drifted into the northbound lane. Fifty-eight-year-old John Fogo of Clay Center, NE was driving a 2005 Peterbuilt semi-tractor pulling a flatbed trailer northbound on Highway 75 when Bickett entered the northbound lane and the two collided. Following the collision, Fogo lost control of the semi-tractor, which entered the west ditch.
Sixty-three-year-old Kathy Van Essen of Sioux Center was driving a 2004 Ford Explorer northbound on Highway 75 behind Bickett. In an attempt to avoid the collision between Bickett and Fogo, Van Essen took the west ditch where the vehicle rolled onto its top.
Van Essen and a passenger, Orlan Van Essen, were both transported to the Sioux Center Hospital by the Sioux Center Ambulance. Fogo was transported to the Rock Valley Hospital by the Hull Ambulance.
The Dodge, owned by Cummins Central Power of Sioux Falls, SD sustained about $40,000 in damages. The Peterbuilt, owned by WN Morehouse Transportation of Omaha, NE sustained about $70,000 in damages. The cargo on the flatbed trailer, consisting of cement cattle feed troughs, sustained about $15,000 in damages. The Ford Explorer sustained about $15,000 in damages.
The Hull Fire Department and personnel from the Hull Ambulance and Sioux Center Ambulance squads assisted the Sheriff’s Office at the scene.
The accident remains under investigation.
