–A Burt woman avoided major injuries after the truck she was driving left the road and rolled late last week in rural Kossuth County.
According to the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office, 51-year-old Stacy Lynn Thompson was northbound on 150th Avenue in a 2001 Chevy SUV around 5:45 PM this past Thursday. Deputies say Thompson lost control of her vehicle and went into the east ditch, where the vehicle rolled and came to rest on the passenger side.
The accident report states that road conditions had become slippery due to some freezing rain and drizzle. Thompson reported possible minor injuries but was not transported from the scene, as she was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Damage to the truck was estimated at $5,000.
