On 06/29/2015 the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was called to investigate a two vehicle accident that had occurred in the 2700 block of 420th Avenue. Upon investigation it was determined that a 2014 Ford Fusion driven by Barbara Jean Croxdale of Ames was traveling northbound on 420th Avenue when she experienced a medical issue. The result of the medical issue caused Croxdale to rear end a 2012 GMC Savana driven by Lauren Ann Johnson of Mason City as she was attempting to make a right hand turn into the driveway at 2741 420th Avenue. The impact forced the GMC into the east ditch were it rolled once and came to rest back on its wheels. The Ford crossed the roadway and entered the west ditch where it came to rest. Johnson was treated for minor injuries on scene. Croxdale was transported by ambulance to Palo Alto County Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. Both vehicles are considered a total loss. The Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the Emmet County Sheriff’s Office and the Palo Alto County Ambulance Service.
