Clay County Collision Results in Substantial Damage

No injuries were reported but there was a considerable amount of property damage in a collision Friday in the 34 hundred mile of 200th Avenue in Clay County.

According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, 57-year-old Eric Langholz of Spencer was driving a 2004 Oldsmobile northbound and was signaling to turn left into a parking lot. Deputies say 41-year-old Anthony Butler of Spencer was driving a 2018 Dodge Ram northbound when he came upon the vehicle driven by Langholz. Authorities say Butler maneuvered his vehicle in front of the Langholz vehicle, causing the vehicle driven by Langholz to collide with the one driven by Butler. Butler’s vehicle then spun out in some grass.

Butler was cited for reckless driving and improper lane change. Damage to the Oldsmobile driven by Langholz was estimated at 25 hundred dollars, while the Dodge Ram driven by Butler sustained an estimated ten thousand dollars in damage.
