Two vehicle accident

A Fort Dodge man was taken to Trinity Regional Medical Center following a two-vehicle accident in front of the Law Enforcement Center this morning.

Frank Patterson, 122 Third Ave. N., was westbound on First Avenue South around 8:30 a.m. when his pick-up truck was struck broadside by a white Impala traveling southbound on South Seventh Street. The impact knocked Patterson’s truck onto its side, and Fort Dodge Fire Department personnel had to cut open the top of the vehicle’s cab to free him.

The Fort Dodge Police Department is in charge of the investigation.
