The Iowa State Patrol reports that at about 05:16 PM, 38-year-old Scott Meyer was driving a 2004 Ford F250 westbound on B40, one mile east of Newkirk. Thirty-seven-year-old Rey Torres Romero was westbound on B40 in a 2002 Dodge Sedan. According to the report, Torres Romero slowed to turn right onto Kiwi Avenue. Meyer observed the brake lights and turn signal of the Dodge, but was travelling too fast and unable to stop in time to avoid a collision. The Ford struck the rear of the Dodge and caused the sedan to enter the north ditch.
Meyer’s Ford received $2,000.00 damage. Torres Romero’s Dodge received $2000 damage.
There were no injuries reported.
