Orange City, Iowa — A rear-end collision sent an Alton teen to the hospital on Friday, April 19, 2024.

Shortly after 10:10 p.m., the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office reports that 20-year-old Guillermo Gonzalez of Fremont, Nebraska, was driving a 2018 Toyota Camry northbound on Jackson Avenue, one mile south of Orange City.
