Medical event results in rare Main Street rollover ...

A scene not so familiar to Main Street in Waukon played out as pictured above Thursday morning, March 8 just before 8 a.m. near East Main Street's intersection with First Street SE in Waukon. According to an accident report filed by the Waukon Police Department, the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse seen on its top in the above photo was being driven westbound down East Main by Donald Denk, age 72, of Waukon when he experienced a medical situation that caused him to lose control of his vehicle and veer to the right into the rear of an unoccupied 2011 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck (center of the photo in background) parked along the north side of East Main Street and owned by Marc Otting of Waukon. The impact forced Denk's vehicle to overturn and also further forced Otting's vehicle into the back end of an unoccupied 2009 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck (pictured at left in the above photo) also parked along East Main Street and owned by Marilyn Clark of Waukon. According to the accident report, Denk was transported to Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon by the hospital's ambulance service for initial treatment. According to further information posted by family members, he was later transfered to a hospital in Rochester, MN for further testing before being released prior to the start of this past weekend.
