Crash injures two people

By Melissa Lambrecht, February 04, 2014

(Lee County) – Two people were injured Monday afternoon following a two vehicle crash north of Iowa highway 16 on highway 218.

The Iowa State Patrol says a semi driven by 63 year old Daniel E. Schneider of Lisbon, Iowa was southbound and following another semi.  As the semi driven by Schneider switched lanes, he failed to see a farm tractor traveling southbound in the right hand lane.

The Schneider semi  attempted to avoid the tractor by swerving to the right striking the tractor in the right rear wheel.  The semi continued down the shoulder and came to rest in a west ditch.  The farm tractor came to rest on its side in the traveled portion of the highway.

Injured were Schneider and the driver of the tractor 71 year old Eugene S. Brune of Houghton, Iowa.  They were taken to area hospitals for treatment of injuries.
