Knight/Calamanco accident

On 10-26-10 at approximately 9:59pm, the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office received a report of a two vehicle accident involving injuries near the intersection of Mallard Ave and Marble Ave located near Seney, Ia.

Investigation states that Ryan Knight, 21, of Independence, Ia was traveling north on Mallard Ave in his 2007 Chevy Cobalt.  As he approached the intersection of Mallard Ave and Marble Ave, Knight decided to turn left onto Marble Ave. 

 

Emily Calamanco, 19, of LeMars was also traveling north on Mallard Ave behind Knight in her 1992 Chevy Lumina.  Calamanco started to pass Knight within the intersection not knowing Knight was going to turn left onto Marble Ave.  The two vehicles side-swiped each other causing the Knight vehicle to remain on Mallard Ave and the Calamanco vehicle entered the west ditch.  Knight received minor injuries to his leg and was transported to Floyd Valley Hospital in LeMars.  Emily Calamanco was believed at the time of the accident to have head trauma, but not life-threatening at the time of the investigation, and was transported to Floyd Valley Hospital in LeMars.  A passenger in the Calamanco vehicle, Haylee Calamanco, 14, received minor injuries to her hand.

Damage to the Knight vehicle was estimated at $4,000.00 and the Calamanco vehicle received $1,000.00 in damage.

 

Charges are pending against Emily Calamanco for illegal passing within an intersection.

Assisting at the scene was LeMars Fire and Rescue, LeMars Ambulance, LeMars Rescue 9, and the Iowa State Patrol.
