Humboldt, IA — A female minor of Humboldt was involved in a two car accident at around seven in the evening on Sunday June 2nd with 88 year old Linda Lanam also of Humboldt.

The minor was uninjured but Lanam had to be taken to Humboldt County Memorial Hospital for shoulder pain. The minor was cited for failure to observe a yield sign at 3rd Ave S and Taft St. S. Lanam’s black Ford Fusion was struck on the driver’s side and both cars had to be towed from the scene. Each vehicle was given an estimated cost of $5,500 in damage.

Neither the minor or Lanam had passengers with them and both were reported wearing their seat belts.
