VENTURA – Early Wednesday morning, around 5:30 AM, a rollover on Highway 18 about one mile west of Ventura was reported.
At the scene, the female driver of a Jeep that rolled after hitting an icy patch on the highway refused medical attention.
A Iowa State Trooper who was helping the female to a friend’s vehicle pulled onto Apple Avenue off of Highway 18, and got stuck in a large snow drift.
The friend of the driver, who preferred not to give names, said, “She was on her way to work and rolled. She didn’t want medical attention, although she is a little sore. The State Trooper tried to bring her to me and got stuck behind me.”
Tony’s Tire, Truck and Towing out of Clear Lake helped with both vehicles.
“Because of this late season, wintry weather, we have been extremely busy,” said Tony’s Tire, Truck and Towing. “It has been hectic.”
