One dead after four vehicle accident in Colfax County
SCHUYLER - One person has died as the result of a four vehicle accident in Colfax County early Wednesday morning.
According to the Colfax County Attorney Denise Kracl, a red 2002 Chevy Tahoe was driving north on Highway 15 and crossed the center line striking a southbound white 2011 Buick Enclave head on.
The vehicles came to rest in the middle of the highway, and a tan 2009 Dodge Ram truck traveling northbound then impacted the Tahoe and the truck came to a rest in the east ditch of the highway.
Kracl said a 2006 international semi-truck and trailer driving south on the highway then impacted both the Tahoe and Enclave.
The driver of the Enclave was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver of the Tahoe was transferred by helicopter to a hospital in critical condition.
The drivers of the Dodge truck and semi didn’t sustain serious injuries.
The accident remains under investigation.
