Sioux Center Woman Injured In Collision With Semi

Sioux Center, Iowa — A Sioux Center woman was taken to an area hospital after her minivan collided with a semi south of Sioux Center Tuesday evening.

Sioux County authorities say the crash occurred shortly after 5:45 Tuesday evening at the intersection of 420th Street and Grant Avenue, one mile south of Sioux Center.

Deputies say 37-year-old Tauney Lockhart, of Sioux Center, was westbound on 420th Street in a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan, and 74-year-old Paul Klusman, of Phoenix, Arizona, was southbound on Grant Avenue in a 1996 Peterbilt semi-tractor pulling a Wilson grain trailer. Authorities say the two vehicles collided in the intersection.

Lockhart was transported by the Sioux Center Ambulance to Sioux Center Health for treatment of her injuries.

Lockhart’s minivan sustained an estimated $10,000 in damage, with damage to Klusman’s Peterbilt estimated at $15,000.

Klusman was cited for failure to obey a stop sign.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Sioux Center Police Department, Sioux Center Ambulance and Sioux Center Fire Department.
