A teenager from Overland Park, Kansas was injured this (Friday) morning, when the van he was a passenger in rolled over off of Interstate 29 in Mills County. The Iowa State Patrol says 16-year old Troy Burgett was transported by Glenwood Rescue to Jenny Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, following the crash which occurred at around 8:45-a.m.   Trooper says he was wearing a seatbelt.

Officials say a 2009 Ford van driven by 27-year old Kefentse Mandisa, also of Overland Park, was traveling north on I-29 about 6-miles south of Glenwood, when the van went out of control on the icy roadway. The vehicle slid into the median, rolled over, and came to rest on the driver’s side. Mandisa was not injured in the crash.
