Motorcyclist Injured On Highway 20

A freak accident on Highway 20/Dodge Street yesterday Monday afternoon left one person with significant injuries. According to a police report, 48 year old Felipe Lopez of Dubuque was driving west on U.S. Highway 20, just west of Old Highway Road, when a mattress that was attached to the top of his car fell off. 74 year old Judith Towell of Marion was in a vehicle behind Lopez, and when she braked to avoid hitting the mattress, a motorcycle driven by 64 year old Bruce Durband of Olin slammed into the back of her vehicle. Durband was transported to Mercy Hospital where he was treated for a broken wrist and a laceration near his eye. Lopez was cited for spilling a load onto the highway.
