A 33 year old Algona woman escaped injury in a one vehicle van accident near Whittemore.
Kossuth County Sheriff`s Deputy Mike Sankey identifies the driver as Christina Pottoff.
Deputy Sankey says Pottoff was driving a 1998 Chevy Van west bound on McGregor Road
when she ran into a hard wind blown snowdrift, control was apparently lost due to snow and extremely slick road conditions, the vehicle entered the north ditch and rolled onto its side. Deputy Sankey says
Potthoff was spared injury because she was wearing her seatbelt! Whittemore Fire and Ambulance was alerted to the scene and got Potthoff out of the vehicle. The accident happened at 5:13 A-M on Monday.
