Alton Woman Injured In Thursday Morning Traffic Crash

Hospers, Iowa — An Alton woman was injured Thursday morning when the car she was driving collided with a pickup truck south of Hospers.

According to Sioux County authorities, the accident happened at the intersection of Highway 60 and Log Avenue shortly after 9:00 Thursday morning (March 26th).

Deputies say 27-year-old Cody Steinkamp of Milford was eastbound on Log Avenue in a 2017 Dodge Ram. Steinkamp reportedly stopped at the stop sign at the Highway 60 intersection, then entered the intersection and collided with a northbound 2008 Chevy Malibu, driven by 34-year-old April Kress of Alton.

Kress was transported by Hospers Ambulance to Sanford Sheldon Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.

Deputies estimate damage to Steinkamp’s Dodge at approximately $9,000, with Kress’ Chevrolet sustaining an estimated $4,000 in damage.

Steinkamp was reportedly cited for failure to yield from a stop sign.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Hospers Fire Department, Hospers Ambulance and Iowa State Patrol.
