Charles City Man Injured in Two-Vehicle Crash East of New Hampton

A Charles City man was injured in a two-vehicle wreck about five miles east of New Hampton Thursday afternoon.

The Iowa State Patrol says the crash occurred shortly after 2:30 p.m. on Highway 24, near the intersection with Quinlan Avenue. A Chevy Suburban driven by 40-year-old Travis Ihrig of Charles City was traveling east when the vehicle crossed the center line and struck the westbound Peterbilt semi tractor-trailer operated by 38-year-old Sean Brophy of Elma. Ihrig’s vehicle initially hit the dual wheels of the semi and then the attached trailer before striking a cable barrier and several posts in the north shoulder of the highway, coming to rest in the roadway.

Ihrig was transported by Chickasaw Ambulance to MercyOne New Hampton Medical Center for treatment of unspecified injuries.  Brophy was not injured.

The Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa DNR assisted at the scene.
