Four teens from Audubon County were transported to the Audubon County Memorial Hospital Wednesday afternoon, following a rollover accident northwest of Audubon. The sheriff’s department reports a 2001 PT Cruiser driven by 15-year old Jordan David Fliflet, of Audubon, was traveling south on Goldfinch Avenue at a high rate of speed, when the teen came upon a northbound tractor pulling harvest equipment.
Fliflit attempted to pull to the right in order to avoid a collision, but lost control of the vehicle. The car entered the west ditch and rolled three times, coming to rest on its top. Fliflet and his passengers, 13-year old’s Nicholas Alan Wilson, of Audubon, and old Rebbeca Dawn Anderson, of Exira, along with 15-year old Ashley Kay Bechtold, of Audubon, were all transported to the hospital.
Damage from the crash, which happened at around 3:30-p.m., Wednesday, amounted to $10,000. Fliflet was charged with Failure to Maintain Control, and Violation of a Minor School License.
