On 01/27/2017 at 7:45 a.m. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was called to investigate a two vehicle accident at the intersection of North Washington Avenue and East Robins Street in Graettinger. Upon investigation it was determined that a blue 2001 Dodge Ram driven by Keith Allen Moran of Graettinger was traveling southbound on North Washington Avenue. Moran stopped at the stop sign and attempted to cross the intersection of North Washington Avenue and East Robins Street when he struck an eastbound red 2000 Chrysler Town and County Driver by Victoria Lynn Hampson of Graettinger.
At the time of the accident there was a large pile of snow that had been pushed into the middle of the roadway on East Robins Street and had not yet been removed. The snow pile obstructed Moran’s view and he was not able to see the Hampson vehicle until it was too late.
There were no injuries reported on scene. No citations were issued based on the circumstances of the accident.
