The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call for a motor vehicle accident on State Highway 2 at the intersection with the northbound exit of 1-29 at 10:38am Friday (4/19) morning.

A semi driven by 47-year-old David Martin of Yukon, OK was exiting I-29 northbound when he failed to yield to an eastbound semi on Highway 2 that was driven by 68-year-old Robert Davis of Hopkins, MO.  Davis was transported from the scene by Mercy Air Care, while Martin was treated and released on scene.

Martin was cited for failure to yield from a stop sign.  The Iowa DOT had closed Highway 2 for cleanup of debris until safe passage was available.  The Fremont County Sheriff’s Officer was assisted by Iowa Commercial Vehicle Enforcement, Iowa DOT, Percival Fire and Rescue, Sidney Fire and Rescue, and Nebraska City Fire Department.
