Hinton, Iowa — A Hull man was involved in an unusual accident in Hinton on Saturday, in which one person died.

According to the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office, at about 1:35 p.m. on Saturday, witnesses reported a gold Nissan Sentra driven by an unknown Caucasian male was traveling at a high rate of speed through Hinton. At the intersection with county road C-60, the Sentra is said to have sideswiped a Blue SUV driven by Baylie Andersen of Jefferson, SD that was stopped at the red light facing northbound. The Sentra then sideswiped a red Chevy Malibu driven by Evan Wielenga of Hull, which was also stopped waiting for the red light facing northbound. The car continued northbound through the red light and struck a Gray 2015 GMC Yukon being driven by Jeremy Ahlers of Remsen. It then struck a 2008 GMC Sierra being driven by Pat Hoebelheinrich of Le Mars. Ultimately the Sentra then came to rest in the middle of the intersection.

The driver of the Nissan Sentra was transported to Mercy Medical Center by Hinton Ambulance and was pronounced dead at the hospital. A passenger in the Ahlers Yukon, Jamie Ahlers, was transported to Orange City Health by Merrill Ambulance. The four children in the Yukon were treated on the scene.

The sheriff’s office tells us the Nissan Sentra had been reported stolen out of Sioux City earlier in the day prior to the accident.

The driver who died was later identified as 26-year-old Ryan Maier of Sioux City, the driver of the stolen vehicle.
