At 2:39 p.m. on April 25, 2021, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a single vehicle accident in the 4900 block of 370th Street. Upon investigation, it was determined a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer, being operated by Jacqueline Holt (60) of Lake Mills, IA, was eastbound pulling a homemade camper trailer when the trailer became unattached to the hitch causing the trailer to hit the ground and be dragged down the shoulder of the road by its safety chains. Holt applied the brakes to the Trailblazer causing the trailer to rear end the Trailblazer.
The trailer was reattached to the Trailblazer and driven away. No injuries were reported at the scene. Damage to the Trailblazer was estimated at $2,000 and damage to the camper was estimated at $1,000.
