Slick Roads Cause Morris Car Crash 14 Nov 17

Slick road conditions are cited in this morning’s semi collision south of Morris, which sent a Chokio man to Stevens Community Medical Center.

At 9:19 a.m., 25-year-old Juan Olivier of the Republic of South Africa was driving a 2006 Peterbuilt truck north on Highway 59, near County Road 78, and starting to turn into a driveway. Behind him, 52-year-old David Robert Asfeld was driving a 1997 Mack 700, when he rear-ended Olivier, spinning the Mack into the east ditch, and overturning.

Olivier wasn’t hurt, and Asfeld’s injuries were minor.
