WORTH COUNTY – A Northern Iowa child and a Minnesota man died in a Worth county auto accident.
According to the Iowa State Patrol, the accident took place on the evening of July 29, 2022. At about 10:20 PM, about a half mile north of Kensett, a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica driven by 24-year-old Maggie Harvey of Northwood was northbound on Highway 65, when the van crossed the center line. The van impacted head-on a 2002 Toyota Avalon driven by 45-year-old John Hinderscheid of Albert Lea, Minnesota. The impact sent the van rolling and it stopped in the middle of the roadway on its top. It was then struck by a 1999 International semi driven by 62-year-old Dennis Stoneking of Northwood, sending the van spinning and into the west ditch.
As a result of the collision, John Hinderscheid was killed. Also killed was a passenger in the van, 3-year-old Thielen Fausnaugh of Northwood. Donations may be made to the family at this Gofundme link.
