Three people from Carroll, two men and a teenager, were injured Saturday evening in Sac County, during a collision between two pickup trucks. The Iowa State Patrol says the drivers of both trucks, 27-year old David Bloyer, and 46-year old Richard Wallace, along with a passenger in his vehicle, 13-year old Jacob Wallace, were injured in the crash, which happened at around 5-p.m. Saturday, south of Auburn.

Officials say a 2004 Chevy pickup driven by Bloyer was traveling south on Highway 71, when the vehicle went out of control due to the icy road and blowing snow. The vehicle crossed the center line of the road and hit a 2011 Chevy pickup driven by Wallace. Richard Wallace was flown from the scene by air ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. David Bloyer and Jacob Wallace were transported by ambulance to the Carroll Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries. All three of the crash victims were wearing their seatbelts.
