On September 30, 2020 at 1746 hrs, the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office was advised of a motor vehicle crash at Hwy 3 and Hwy 140 on the east edge of Remsen.

At this point, we know that a northbound passenger car failed to yield from a stop sign and pulled into the path of an eastbound minivan.  Three people were taken to Floyd Valley Hospital by Remsen Ambulance.  At this point, we can confirm that one person has died as a result of the accident.  No further information is being released until the investigation has progressed and next of kin has been notified. 

Assisting at the scene was the Remsen Ambulance, Fire and Police; the Kingsley Police; the Le Mars Police; the Iowa State Patrol; the Iowa DOT Motor Vehicle Enforcement and the Iowa DOT Maintenance.  As of this release, Hwy 3 remains closed on the east edge of Remsen with an emergency detour in place.
