On August 28, 2021 at approximately 1520 hours, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a single vehicle motorcycle accident on C38 just west of K22 in rural Plymouth County. A Plymouth County Deputy arrived and observed two (2) individuals involved in the motorcycle accident, Christos Kritis, age 39 of Sioux City and Ashley Kriitis, age 35 also of Sioux City.
After investigation, it was determined the driver Christos lost control of the motorcycle after a group of motorcyclists they were riding with attempted to slow down due to a vehicle blocking the opposite lane of traffic on C38 near K22. The motorcycle went into the north ditch causing both individuals to sustain non-life threating but serious injuries.
Both individuals were transported to Mercy One hospital in Sioux City, Iowa. The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Iowa DNR, Le Mars Fire Rescue and Merrill Ambulance.
