Accident

On September 13, 2020, at 4:08 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call of a single vehicle accident in the 3500-block of 360th Street near Ruthven. Upon investigation into the accident it was determined a 2007 Saturn Ion, operated by Susan McGregor (57) of Mason City, IA., was westbound on 360th Street when the vehicle crossed into the eastbound lane of 360th Street and onto the south shoulder. McGregor would cross back across 360th Street and enter the north ditch which caused the vehicle to roll on to it’s top.

McGregor complained of injury at the scene and was transported to the Palo Alto County Hospital by the Emmetsburg County Ambulance Service. McGregor was treated for non-incapacitating injuries at the Palo Alto County Hospital. The 2007 Saturn Ion is considered totaled as a result of the accident.

Assisting the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office at the scene was the Ruthven Fire Department, Ruthven Ambulance Service, Palo Alto County Ambulance Service, the Iowa State Patrol, and Wickman Towing. Investigation into the accident continues and criminal charges are pending.
