Humboldt County, IA – No injuries reported after two vehicles are left disable on Highway 169 on Friday.

Deputy Matt Steil of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office files the report on the incident. His report says that on Friday, March 5, Erick Ramos Rivera, 31, of Humboldt was stopped facing south on Hwy 169 waiting for a northbound vehicle to pass so he could make a U-turn. Sarah Rimmington, 40, of Gilmore City was traveling southbound and came upon Ramos Rivera.
