ROCKWELL, Iowa – Two people were taken to the hospital after a crash north of Rockwell Monday.
The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office says a touring van driven by Larry Richard Mients, 73 of Sheffield, was southbound on Partridge Avenue when he tried to turn left onto 170th Street. Due to a mechanical problem with the brakes, the van went out of control and entered the ditch.
Larry Meints and a passenger, Donna Lou Meints, 71 of Sheffield, were taken to MercyOne North Iowa Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. No charges are being filed over this accident, which happened around 5:50 pm.
