The most recent motor vehicle collision happened at around 4 p.m. on Monday in the McDonalds drive through. Antonio Ibarra of Denison was driving a 2001 Honda Accord. Ibarra told police he was following 24-year-old Graciela Lopez too closely and rear-ended her 2019 Dodge Durango. No injuries were reported and no citations were issued. The expected cost to fix the Durango damage is $100.

Another accident occurred on Saturday at around 3:30 p.m. near Highway 59. The report indicates that 69-year-old Richard Winegardner of Ankeny was riding a 2019 Harley-Davidson and merging from Iowa 39 into the southbound 59 left lane. A 2006 Ford F-250 driven by 35-year-old Antonio Lopez of Schleswig was southbound in the right lane. Police say an unknown, non-contact third vehicle was stopped on the left shoulder of 59. That third vehicle abruptly entered the roadway from the shoulder and caused Winegardner to move his motorcycle into the right lane. It struck the left rear of the Ford pickup and fell onto its right side due to the impact. The related document indicates that Winegardner was not wearing a helmet and sustained minor injuries to his face as well as his right arm and leg. He refused medical attention from the responding Crawford County Memorial Hospital ambulance. Authorities cited Lopez for having no valid drivers license. Damage estimates totaled $3,000 for the motorcycle and $500 for the pickup.

A third motor vehicle incident took place at almost 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the Burger King parking lot. The responding officer arrived to find a 2004 Toyota Sienna owned and operated by 26-year-old Thomas Smith-Sausoci of Denison with minor damage. He told police that he hit a concrete light pole support that was bent over to where he could not see it from the driver seat. No injuries were reported. The estimated cost to repair the van is $1,000. The owner of nearby Feller Furniture confirmed to authorities that the concrete support has been laying over that way for years. The officer told a Burger King employee that something needs to be done about the concrete support and the employee stated they would call the district manager.
