Four injured in accident near Estelline

Four people are injured in a head-on collision on a rural road southeast of Estelline.

Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring says a pickup driven by 51-year-old Todd Goodfellow of Bruce and an SUV driven by 31-year-old Melissa Flitter of Bruce collided near the intersection of 468th Avenue and 199th Street.

Sebring says the two vehicles were approaching at the top of a hill and one vehicle failed to move to the side when cresting the hill. He says one vehicle was traveling 35 mph and the other was traveling 55 mph prior to the collision.

Flitter and a passenger in her vehicle, 85-year-old Emil Misar of Volga, were taken by ambulance to the Brookings Hospital. Another passenger in that vehicle and Goodfellow were assisted by private individuals.

The Sheriff’s Office is investigating and Sebring says charges are pending.
