A Denison woman was airlifted to a Sioux City hospital in the aftermath of a fiery crash near Alton early Thursday evening.
According to the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office, about 5:20 Thursday evening they were called to investigate a motor vehicle accident that occurred on Highway 60, one mile north of Alton.
According to authorities, 38-year-old Michael Nelson, of Crescent, Iowa, was driving a 2021 Peterbilt semi-truck pulling a cattle trailer northbound on Highway 60. Deputies say he slowed to turn east onto 440th Street, when a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, driven by 37-year-old Kayleen Stallman, of Denison, struck Nelson’s trailer. Deputies say the minivan caught fire after the collision, with Stallman trapped inside.
