Trailer Destroyed in Clay County Collision

A trailer was totaled in a two-vehicle accident in Clay County.

According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened around 9:40 Wednesday morning just east of Gillett Grove at the intersection of county roads B-53 and N-14. 68-year-old Douglas Seltz of Clare was driving a truck that was pulling a homemade trailer on N-14. 25-year-old Chris Pruitt of Spencer was driving a van eastbound on B-53. Seltz failed to yield at the intersection, which caused Pruitt’s vehicle to collide with the trailer that was being pulled by Seltz’s vehicle.

The trailer was considered a total loss due to the collision. Pruitt’s vehicle sustained approximately four-thousand dollars in damage. Seltz was issued a citation for Failure to Yield to the Right of Way.
