Two teenaged girls died and a male teenager was injured during a collision early Saturday morning on the Sac/Carroll County line. The Iowa State Patrol identified the fatalities as 16-year old’s Bailey Jacobsen and Lindsey Quick, both of Wall Lake. Both teens were pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials say Jacobsen was driving a 2009 Chevy Impala was hit by a 1996 Dodge Ram pickup driven by 17-year old Trevor Feauto, of Lake View. Feauto was injured and transported to a local hospital.
The accident happened at around 1:15-a.m. at the intersection of 100th Street and Birch Avenue (in Carroll County) and 400th Street & Otter Avenue (In Sac County). Officers arriving on the scene found the pickup on its side in the north ditch, while the Impala, which was occupied by the two females, came to rest in a soybean field on the northwest side of the intersection.
An investigation determined the Impala, driven by Jacobsen, was traveling north on Birch Avenue, while the pickup was traveling west on 400th St/100th Steet. The pickup struck the passenger side of the Impala, causing the vehicles to skid into the opposite ditches.
The accident remains under investigation by the State Patrol, Sac and Carroll County Sheriff’s Departments. Assisting at the scene, were personnel from Breda Fire & Rescue, Wall Lake Ambulance, The Carroll County Medical Examiner’s Office, and others.
