On Thursday, April 14, at 10:04 a.m., the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office investigated a motor accident that occurred on Kingbird Avenue, four miles west of Hospers, IA.

Robert De Haan, age 70, of Orange City, IA, was driving a 2020 Ford F-150 pickup pulling an 2022 EBY Livestock trailer northbound on Kingbird Avenue. De Haan encountered a high gust of wind that picked the trailer up, causing the trailer and vehicle to roll onto Kingbird Avenue.

De Haan reported minor injuries and declined further medical treatment after medical attention provided by Hospers EMTs.

The F-150 and trailer sustained an estimated $55,000 in damage.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Hospers Ambulance and the Hospers Fire Department.
