A Mason City man faces multiple charges after making one bad decision after another in the snow Tuesday morning. Police say 23-year-old Eric Sombright was behind a school bus when his car slid on the ice and struck the back of the bus.
He then reportedly drove around the bus and fled the scene, running a stop sign at an intersection two blocks away where his vehicle struck a car driven by 44-year-old Deidra Rattay, which then struck a car driven by 54-year-old Jay Teepe of Mason City. Nobody was injured in either accident.
Sombright was charged with having no driver’s license, not having insurance, failure to stop at a clear distance, and failing to obey a traffic control device.
