Car Crash Leaves One Dead

A collision of two vehicles at 11am, yesterday, leaves one man dead with three survivors. Two miles east of South Sioux City on Hwy. 20 the impact had sent both vehicles into the ditch on the north side of the road. According to highway patrolman Patric Steward, both vehicles were proceeding in a westerly direction on the two-lane highway. The deceased had passed Radin, in the other vehicle, but his rear-end struck Radin as he attempted to complete the pass.

Three survivors were transported by ambulance to Marian Health Center. The injured included two passengers in the rolled vehicle: Dorothy Quick, 61, also of South Sioux City and Maxine Steuerwald, 43, of Lawton. Along with Randy Radin, 17 of Sioux City. Dorothy is reported in “good” condition, Maxine is in “fair” condition, and Radin is listed as “critical” with a fractured skull and internal injuries.

The deceased, as revealed by the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office, a resident of South Sioux City is Moyer Quick at age 65.

The accident, which is still under investigation, occurred under cloudy skies with rain in the forecast while the road was clear and dry. The relationship of the Quicks and Steuerwald is unknown.


  1. The “when” isn’t critical here, Diane.

    As a reader, think what you would want to know first if you
    heard “car accident.” Would you ask when? Where? My
    guess is you would ask, Who? Deaths and injuries first,
    then the how.
