The front passenger tire was damaged and Perez Molina lost control of the vehicle. It slid down the embankment on the south side of Highway 59 and came to rest in the ditch at the bottom of the bank.

He was told to consider making a medical appointment if the soreness got worse or continued. All the airbags in the vehicle deployed during the accident.

A Honda and a garbage truck were involved in an accident at the intersection of Broadway and 16th Street in Denison at 9:45 a.m. on February 7. Wilson Riphin, 46, of Denison, was driving a white 1999 Honda CR-V east on Broadway, and Brian Paul Lindsay, 36, of Carroll, was driving a blue 2012 Peterbilt truck south on 16th Street. Riphin told the investigating officer that he stopped at the stop sign at the intersection with 16th Street and proceeded to drive forward when the truck didn’t stop at the stop sign. Riphin said he was unable to stop due to the snow-covered street. A passenger in Riphin’s vehicle gave the same account. Lindsay said he stopped at the stop sign at the Broadway intersection. He said he was proceeding across the intersection when he noticed that Riphin’s vehicle was sliding with its brakes locked up; it was coming to the intersection and he didn’t get stopped in time. Riphin’s car struck the rear axle area of the garbage truck. The front bumper of Riphin’s car was completely ripped off and was under the vehicle. Lindsay did not notice any damage to the truck. When Riphin was asked for his license, registration and insurance, he told the officer that he was sending his vehicle back to his country and that he didn’t currently have insurance on the vehicle. Riphin and the passenger in his vehicle were both transported to Crawford County Memorial Hospital by Crawford County Ambulance and were treated for lower back and neck injuries. Lindsay said he was not injured. Riphin was cited for failure to prove security against liability, accident, and was issued the citation at the hospital. Riphin was also informed that his license will be suspended on February 13 for a previous fine he received last year for the same violation (but not accident-related) and non-payment of that fine.
