Train-Truck Crash Sends Teen Driver to Hospital

A teen driver was injured by a train Wednesday morning in rural Winneshiek County.

According to officials with the Iowa State Patrol, the train-truck collision occurred shortly after 7:00 a.m. on 29th Avenue north of Iowa Highway 24. Police say 17-year-old Jordan Blaess, of Spillville, did not see the westbound train in time to stop his Chevrolet pickup truck. According to the accident report, the force of the impact caused the truck to roll before it came to rest in a ditch.

Blaess was transported by ambulance to the Winneshiek Medical Center in Decorah. His injuries were described as non-life-threatening. No information on the nature of his injuries was available.

The train is owned by Canadian Pacific Railway, authorities said.

The accident remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
