14—Algona, (la.) Upper Des Maine* Tuesday, April 25, 1967 $20,000 Damage When Trucks, Auto, Pile Up Dense fog Thursday night was blamed for a 3-vehicle smashup three miles south of Wesley on highway 60 that resulted in an estimated $20,000 damage. Patrolman Tom Cogdall who Investigated the strange mishap charged two of the drivers involved. Perry G. DeGroote, 76, Corwltli, was charged with failing to yield half of the traveled portion of the roadway and Leo G. Fevold, Goldfleld, was charged with failing to have control of his vehicle. The Wesley fire department was called to the scene about 11 p.m., 15 minutes after the 2- truck-auto crash, to flush gasoline off the highway. The fluid leaked from one tif the trailers involved. DeGroote and his wife were headed north In the auto shortly before the crash. He missed a turn, and with the help of his wife, who used a flashlight to guide him, was attempting to turn around on the highway when a semi-trailer hauling gasoline and driven by Arthur Halmes, Mason City, came along headed south. Halmes slammed on his brakes and stopped. However, another semi, driven by Fevold, which was behind the other semi, could not stop and his vehicle struck both of the others. It took six hours to clear the area for traffic and it was nec- cessary for a large wrecker and 15-20 ton crane to move the large trucks. Damage to the vehicles was $17,000 to the Fevold machine, and $1,500 each to the other two, according to estimates. Fortunately, no one got injured. An auto driven by Ray Lewis, Des Moines, and a truck driven by John J. Meyer, Algona, collided near Schultz Bros, garage at 3:55 p.m. Wednesday and as a result, the Des Moines driver was charged with making an improper left turn. Lewis was turning In to the Schultz station and failed to see the truck driven by Meyer. The mishap was the second within a four day span at the Schultz site. Damage to the vehicles was estimated at $350 by city police who investigated.
