MASON CITY – A truck – car collision Tuesday morning in Mason City sent a woman to the hospital.

Cerro Gordo deputies responded at 10:01 AM to a report of a two vehicle accident with injuries at the intersection of Mallard Ave and 250th Street. A 2000 Honda Odessy driven by Tina Friest, age 34 of Charles City, IA was traveling northbound on Mallard Ave. The second vehicle, a 2015 Volvo semi with box trailer, driven by Benjamin Hancock, age 58 of Charitan, IA was traveling southbound on Mallard Ave. According to Friest and eye witnesses, Friest drifted onto the shoulder of the roadway and tried to correct her actions and lost traction on the snow covered roadway, came back onto the roadway, crossed the center line, and entered onto the southbound lane where the vehicles collided.

Friest was transported to the North Iowa Mercy Health Center by the Mason City Fire/Ambulance Service. No other subjects were injured in this accident.

The extent of injury is unknown.

    Have to say my street was plowed and I thought plow drivers did a good job.

    My street was plowed at 7:10 this morning. Looking at the pictures of the accident scene, it doesn’t look like the road was (snow covered). I’m thinking that it was a driver not paying attention to driving.

      At 9:30am Eisenhower, from the Ave of the Saints to 19th, was terrible. Looked like the traffic flattened the snow. I heard Taft was the same.

        The picture is worth a thousand words, but it’s still driver error.

    on a side note, the roads in Mason City were the worst they have been all year! Did the city employees take the blades off the trucks already? Absolutly terrible

        It’s March 1st. And even though we all know snowing possible in March, the city officials are probably crying that they’re over budget.
