On 05/21/2020 at 5:14 P.M. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was called to the 4900 block of 370th St. for a two vehicle non-injury accident. A 2009 GMC Acadia, owned and operated by Kay Wise of Emmetsburg, was east bound and was stopped waiting to make a left tun onto 490th Ave. A 2010 Hyundai Elantra, owned and operated by Kaitlin Adams of Whittemore, was also east bound. Kaitlin said when she noticed the vehicle in front of her had stopped to make a left turn she could not stop in time, and rear ended the Acadia. Neither subject was injured as a result of the accident. The damage to the Acadia is estimated at $300.00, and the damage to the Elantra is estimated at $1000.00. Kaitlin was cited for following to close, and no proof of liability insurance.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
