Three people were injured in traffic accidents in Webster County Tuesday morning.
In one accident, two elderly people were injured after their car rolled over on 120th Street, just off of U.S. Highway 169. Witnesses reported seeing the car flip over into a ditch after losing control on a bridge. The status of their injuries is not known.
In another, the driver of a Ford F-150 was injured when his truck rolled over on North 15th Street, just south of the bridge and north of Floral Avenue. The driver lost control when he hit a slippery patch, police said.
Badger firefighters use hydraulic extraction equipment Tuesday morning to remove two victims of a roll-over accident on 120th Street about one mile east of U.S. Highway 169. The vehicle apparently lost on control on the bridge over the Des Moines River.
