A Rembrandt man was involved in a tractor accident on Christmas Eve.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office responded to a semi-rollover early this past Sunday morning, December 24th. According to a press release, Ronald Peters, of Rembrandt, was operating a 2017 Peterbilt Tractor when it veered off the road into the median.
Peters was attempting to reach over to the passenger seat and when the tractor/trailer swerved, he was unable to regain control leading to both the tractor and trailer lying on their sides. Peters was trapped inside until fire departments arrived. Peters was transported to the Spencer Hospital to be treated.
Assisting on the scene was the Iowa State Patrol, Spencer Police Department, Fostoria Fire Department, Spencer Fire Department, Spencer Hospital Ambulance, and Stockton Towing.
