A one-vehicle accident occurred Saturday morning west of Utica.
Yankton County Chief Deputy Sheriff Michael Rothschadl says that the Sheriff’s Office responded to an accident three miles west of Utica on Saturday at 10:39 AM.
He says 60-year-old Julie Block of Lesterville was traveling in a 2014 Chrysler Town & Country SUV westbound when a couple of papers fell on the floor. She stated that she went to reach for them and that is when her vehicle entered the right ditch. The vehicle then proceeded to hit a field approach, rolled, and then landed on the driver’s side. Block was able to get out of the vehicle. The Ambulance checked on her and she was not hurt but was going to the hospital on her own.
Responding to the scene of the accident were the Yankton County Sheriff’s Office, Yankton Fire Department, Lesterville Fire Department, and Yankton County EMS.
