Two people were sent to the hospital after a two-vehicle crash Friday morning near Orange City.

 

The Sioux County Sheriff's Office says at about 10 a.m. a tractor driven by 41-year-old Joshua Sievers of Le Mars, was traveling southbound on Highway 60 when his vehicle was struck by an SUV.

 

The sheriff's office says the southbound SUV, driven by 26-year-old Jodie Huju of Sioux City, struck the tractor from behind on the roadway.

 

During the accident, the tractor tipped onto its side and Sievers was ejected from the vehicle.

 

Both drivers were transported to an Orange City hospital for treatment of their injuries. Sievers was later flown to a Sioux Falls hospital for further treatment.

 

Huju was cited for following too close to the tractor.

 

The accident remains under investigation.
