Hospers, Iowa — Two people were flown to a Sioux Falls hospital after an accident at a Highway 60 grade intersection at Hospers on Monday.

According to the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office, at a few minutes after 4:00 p.m., 66-year-old Shawn Munns of Hawarden was driving a 2007 Peterbilt semi-tractor pulling a tank trailer southbound on Highway 60. They tell us that 17-year-old Beder Aguilon of Worthington, MN was driving a 1999 Toyota Corolla eastbound on 400th Street. The report says he failed to stop for the stop sign at Highway 60 and entered the intersection where the vehicles collided.

Damage to the Toyota was estimated at $1,500. Damage to the Peterbilt and trailer was estimated at $100,000.

The Hospers Ambulance took Aguilon to Orange City Area Health. He was later flown to Sanford Sioux Falls for further medical attention. The Sheldon Community Ambulance Team transported a passenger in the Toyota, 20-year-old Ernesto Martin of Worthington to Sanford Sheldon Medical Center. He was also later flown to Sanford Sioux Falls for further medical treatment. Munns did not report any injuries.

Aguilon was cited on a charge of failure to obey a stop sign and yield the right of way.

The Sheriff’s Office reports that the Hospers Fire Department, the Hospers Ambulance Squad, the Sheldon Community Ambulance Team, the Orange City Ambulance Squad, and the Iowa Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicle Enforcement assisted with the response to the accident.
