On 11/18/18, the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office received a report of a single vehicle in the ditch north of Merrill, IA on Highway 75.  Deputies responded and located a semi tractor pulling a tank trailer lying on its driver's side in the ditch just north of Kestrel Avenue.

The driver, Thomas Patrick Van Horsen of Sheldon, IA, may have had a medical issue prior to the crash.  Van Horsen was transported by the Le Mars Ambulance to Mercy Medical with non life-threatening injuries.  The 2015 Peterbuilt tractor and 2008 trailer sustained substantial damage.   The investigation is ongoing.

Assisting with the crash was Le Mars Fire Rescue, Le Mars Ambulance, Merrill Ambulance, Iowa State Patrol, an Iowa Department of Transportation officer and the Iowa Department of Transportation Highway Department.
