Four Taken To Hospital After Highway 60 Crash At Hospers

Hospers, Iowa– A South Sioux City woman and three of her passengers were taken to hospitals after an accident at Hospers on Thursday, August 3, 2023.

The Iowa State Patrol reports that at about 3:30 p.m., 28-year-old Dinora Sabillon Diaz of South Sioux City was driving a 1999 Chevy northbound on Highway 60, at Hospers. They tell us that 75-year-old Jerald Ollerich of Sioux Falls was also northbound on 60 in a 2014 Peterbilt, near Hospers Drive South.

The report says that the truck was in the left lane traveling faster than the car. As Ollerich’s truck neared coming abreast of the Sabillon Diaz Chevy, Sabillon Diaz signaled a lane change and moved left into Ollerich. Her car hit the front right corner of the truck. The Chevy then went sideways and the side of the Chevy impacted the front of the truck.

The trooper says the investigation determined that none of the occupants of the Chevy were restrained. All occupants of the Chevy were transported for medical treatment.

The Hospers Ambulance took Sabillon Diaz and the three passengers, two children and one adult, to Orange City Health System Hospital. The trooper notes he was told that the front two occupants had serious injuries and the rear two occupants had minor injuries.

Sabillon Diaz’s Chevy sustained $5000 in damages, which totaled the vehicle. The truck was not damaged.

Sabillon Diaz was charged with driving without a license, improper lane change, and two counts of failure to use a child restraint device.
