No Injuries in Tractor/SUV Collision Near Edgewood

A tractor pulling a hay trailer was rear-ended near Edgewood on Monday night.

The accident happened east of town on Highway 3 near Glacier Road shortly after 5 pm. The Iowa State Patrol says an eastbound SUV struck the back of a tractor pulling a hay trailer, which was also eastbound.

Authorities say the tractor and hay trailer, driven by 80-year old Lester Simons of Colesburg, were operating without sufficient lighting and slow moving vehicle signage.

Neither Simons nor the driver of the SUV, 27-year old Kristine Hildebrand of Colesburg, were hurt in the crash.

Simons was cited for Failure to Display Reflective Device on a Slow Moving Vehicle.
