Accident that fatally injured teenager caused by road conditions/fog
-There is an official report on a vehicle accident last Thursday night which took the life of a Manning high school student. The report indicates that fog and slick road conditions were likely factors in the crash, as first responders were called to the scene near the intersection of 300th Street and Concord Avenue northeast of Manning just after 8:30 P.M. The report shows that 15 year old Max Sanford was headed north on Concord Avenue in a 1996 Dodge Ram when the truck left the road and entered the east ditch. The vehicle continued traveling north in the ditch, driving off the south bank of a creek and going airborne before striking the north side of the creek bank. The vehicle then came to rest in the waterway on its top. Sanford was extricated from the pickup and transported to Manning Regional Healthcare Center by Carroll County EMS with critical injuries. From there, he was transferred to a Des Moines Hospital where he was pronounced dead from injuries.
