One man was killed and another hurt, when they were struck by a car Thursday morning in the Adair County town of Greenfield. Authorities say 51-Steve Forcht, of Stuart, died from injuries he suffered when a vehicle driven by 16-year old Jennifer Johnston, of rural Greenfield, struck Forcht and 34-year old Corey Queck, of Fontanelle, as the men were unloading equipment from a flat bed tractor trailer. Forcht was taken to Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, where he later died from multiple injuries. Queck was transported to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines, where a report on his condition was not available. Greenfield Police say Johnston was traveling East on Townline Road, near Cardinal Glass I-G, at about 7:15 Thursday morning. She told police as she topped a hill she was blinded by glare from the sun, and didn’t notice the men, who were standing next to the semi trying to remove a tarp from a piece of equipment.
