A two-vehicle accident occurred last Thursday at the intersection of East Lakeshore and McKenna Drive near the city limits.

According to the Buena Vista County Sheriff's Department, Ray Delp of Storm Lake was traveling eastbound on East Lakeshore. He was turning north onto McKenna Drive when a vehicle struck the rear end of his pickup truck.

Delp was starting to turn left and was across the center line when he was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Bernette Austin, 77 of Sac City.

Delp's vehicle was pushed into the northeast ditch, while Austin's vehicle came to rest on the shoulder on the south side of the road.

There was $3,000 damage to Delp's 1989 Ford Ranger and $3,000 to Austin's 1993 Pontiac Sunbird.

Austin was charged with failure to stop at an assured distance.
