Another Head-On Collision in South Lee County
An 80-year-old Keokuk woman suffered a number of serious injuries yesterday, in the second head-on collision on Argyle Road in two days.
Illene Robertson had to be cut from her subcompact car. She was then taken by ambulance to Keokuk Hospital and flown to Iowa City for further treatment. The other driver, 61-year-old John Hobart of Warsaw Il., was not hurt.
Lee County Sheriff’s Deputies say the accident occured around 12:30 pm. Robertson pulled from the “stop” intersection of 235th Avenue and Argyle Road (also known as W-62), turned west, and her Chevy Metro collided with Hobart’s Ford Conversion van, which was eastbound.
