On October 6, 2016 at about 7:19 PM, Cerro Gordo County Deputies responded to a traffic collision involving injuries. A 2005 Ford F-150 driven by Logan Wilcke, 19, of Clear Lake was traveling southbound when it rear-ended a 2002 Ford Escape that was slowing down due to a vehicle in front of them making a right-hand turn. The Ford Escape was driven by Kenneth Vickers, age 41 of Charles City.
Both Wilcke and Vickers were not injured during the collision.
However, Jacqsen Hesse, age 20 of New Hampton; Cleon Mitchell, age 37 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Wendi Duncan, age 47 of Charles City were all transported to Mercy Medical Center North Iowa by the Mason City Fire Department for minor non-life threatening injuries.
Wilcke was cited for failure to stop within an assured clear distance. The Ford Escape sustained minor damage while the Ford F-150 sustained disabling damage to the front of the vehicle.
