A vehicle damaged a residence in Hull early Wednesday morning.  The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office investigated the accident at the intersection on 7th Street and Linden Street.

18-year-old Kaytana Heimark of Rock Rapids was driving westbound on 7th Street when she failed to stop for the stop sign, drove over a curb, crossed a lawn and struck a residence.

Heimark was transported by the Hull Ambulance to Sioux Center Health; she was later flown by helicopter to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls for further treatment of her injuries. The homeowner was inside the residence at the time of the accident and was not injured.

Heimark’s vehicle sustained approximately $6,000 in damage. The residence sustained approximately $30,000 in damage.  Alcohol is believed to be a factor; the accident remains under investigation.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Hull Fire Department, Hull Ambulance and Rock Valley Police Department.
