Two Injured in Multi-Car Collision

By Aaryn Frazier, September 12, 2018

Three vehicle accident at 7:48 results in two injuries on highway 92 west of Oskaloosa on September 11.

According to the minimal crash report from the Iowa State Patrol, Dalton James Joseph Garcia, 22 of Bussey, and Denise Luann Allgood, 51 of Oskaloosa were westbound on highway 92. Coming the opposite direction, heading eastbound on the highway was Jeffery Kenneth Hartzell, 41 of Bellevue.

The reasoning is still unclear, but Garcia proceeded to rear end Allgood’s SUV causing both vehicles to cross the centerline into the path of Hartzell’s semi and striking his vehicle.

Allgood and Garcia came to rest in the north ditch with Hartzell ending up in the south ditch. The first two were injured in the accident and Allgood was taken to Mahaska Hospital while Garcia was airlifted to the Mercy Hospital in Des Moines.

The accident remains under investigation. This is a joint effort between Iowa State Patrol in Mahaska, Oskaloosa Police Department and Fire Rescue and Mahaska Ambulance.
