Sheriff: Car accident caused by road dust

Posted: Updated:

Deputies with Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office are investigating a car crash they believe was caused by road dust.

It happened Tuesday afternoon. Travis Frana, 35, was heading West on Town Line Rd in a dump truck near Decorah. Authorities believe 61-year-old Janice Halverson rear-ended him because she could not see the truck through the dust.

The dump truck suffered minimal damage, while Halverson's Ford Escape was damaged to the tune of $6000.

No serious injuries were reported.
