Farm tractor accident northwest of Sioux Center- May 22

On Sunday, May 22, at 10:05 a.m., the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office investigated a report of a farm vehicle accident that occurred on Eagle Avenue, eight miles northwest of Sioux Center, IA.

Jesse Andrews, age 33, of Sioux Center, was driving a John Deere 7600 farm tractor pulling a feed wagon loaded with cattle feed northbound on Eagle Avenue. Andrews reported he lost control of the tractor following a mechanical malfunction that caused the tractor to cross the southbound traffic half of the roadway and enter the west ditch; the tractor and wagon rolled onto its side in the ditch.

Andrews reported minor injuries and sought medical attention on his own.

The tractor and wagon sustained an estimated $10,000 in damage.
