2 injured, pigs killed in serious roll-over accident in Iowa

In Iowa, you may not expect to be involved in a car accident. Many rural areas don't see much traffic, and even the cities tend to be fairly safe. That doesn't mean accidents can't happen, though. When you're hurt in one, you may be left asking who is going to pay the bill and what's going to happen to the person who caused the accident and injuries you suffered from. You may have the right to a civil case, which the injured man in this sorry about two people being injured and several pigs being killed may choose to pursue.

According to a news report from July 29, a 68-year-old man from Spencer had been heading east on County Road 25 but failed to stop at a stop sight at an intersection where U.S. Highway 71 crossed CR 25. As the driver crossed into the intersection, a 48-year-old man's semi struck the vehicle and rolled. The semi was carrying a trailer of pigs.

The semi driver was injured in the accident, suffering minor injuries that required treatment at a local hospital. The 68-year-old man was trapped in his truck, and firefighters had to extricate him with the Jaw of Life. He was taken to Buena Vista Regional Medical Center where it was reported that he was seriously injured, but no updates were made available by his family.

Out of all the pigs in the load, around a quarter of them were killed. Now, charges are pending against the truck driver as the Iowa Motor Vehicle Enforcement Office works to investigate the scene and to see if the truck malfunctioned.
