Thu 7-5-2018

(Council Bluffs)-- Two Spencer residents were injured in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 29 shortly after 6:00 this (Thurs.) morning in Pottawattamie county. 

The Iowa State Patrol says 25-year-old Tyson Heckathorn of Spencer was northbound when he fell asleep. The vehicle drifted to the left shoulder, nearly striking the median barrier. He then woke up and over-corrected. The vehicle went into the east ditch and rolled. 

Heckathorn and a passenger, 38-year-old Melissa Kruse of Spencer, were taken by ambulance to a Council Bluffs hospital.
