On Friday, July 12, at 3:24 p.m. officers of the Delta Police Department responded to the 1200 block of Main Street in Delta for a multiple vehicle crash. Investigation revealed a single northbound vehicle had veered off the highway, crossed all lanes, and crashed into three unoccupied vehicles in the parking lot of The Stockyards Restaurant. One of the three unoccupied vehicles was sitting on its side resting against a tree.
The vehicle which had come off the highway was driven by Ronald Vonhagen, 74, of Ketchum, Idaho. Vonhagen was travelling north from Montrose into Delta when he alleged he had possibly fallen asleep. Vonhagen sustained very minor injuries; no other injuries were reported. Three of the four vehicles involved were towed from the scene. Alcohol was not a factor.blog comments powered by Disqus
