Hwy 71 semi - car accident

DCSO investigated a two vehicle accident that happened near the south edge of Milford on Highway 71, January 27, 2013. 

At approximately 7:50 AM, Alexander Cruz (29) of Storm Lake IA was driving a 2005 Volvo Semi tractor/trailer loaded with turkeys southbound on Hwy 71.  Cruz lost control of the truck and slid into a 2003 Nissan Murano driven by Kaylee Durst (23) of Okoboji.  Durst was pulled to the right side of the road after recently losing control on the icy roads.  Both vehicles slid into the west ditch.  The semi turned onto its side losing some of the turkeys.  Both drivers were taken to LRH ER, treated and released for non-incapacitating injuries.  Cruz was transported by ambulance and Durst by private vehicle.  $20,000 damage was estimated to the Volvo and $7000 damage was estimated to the Nissan.  Crews were on scene until approximately 3PM.
