  • 0

An 18-year-old Breda woman was driving a car too fast west of her town Monday morning when it went out of control on a snowy road and crashed into the side of an oncoming vehicle with an infant passenger, according to a sheriff’s report.

No one was injured.

Harmony Grace Helkenn was westbound on 120th Street about two miles west of Breda when her car went off the roadway, spun back onto it and struck the front driver’s side of an eastbound sport-utility vehicle driven by Christina Marie Woerdehoff, 31, of Lake View.

The 7:30 a.m. crash pushed Woerdehoff’s vehicle into a ditch. A 6-month-old infant in the back seat was not injured, the report said.

Woerdehoff’s 2016 Chevrolet Equinox had an estimated $7,000 damage. Helkenn’s 2001 Honda Accord had an estimated $2,000 damage. Both vehicles were towed from the crash site.

Helkenn was cited for no vehicle registration.

There were no crashes in Carroll that day that were snow-related, Police Chief Brad Burke said.

About a half inch of snow and less than a tenth of an inch of rain fell in the area in the 12 hours leading up to the crash, according to the National Weather Service.

More snow is expected Friday.
