The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 8:50 PM, 22-year-old Steven Broersma of Sunnyside, Washington was driving a farm tractor pulling a manure spreader westbound on 290th Street, two miles north of Hull.
Eighty-five-year-old Alvin Sohl of Rock Rapids was driving a minivan behind Broersma.
The report says that as Sohl approached Broersma he was unable to stop and struck the rear of the manure spreader.
The Sheriff’s Office reports that Alvin Sohl and a passenger, 82-year-old Arlene Sohl of Rock Rapids were transported to Sioux Center Health by Hull Ambulance.
They were both transferred to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, where Alvin Sohl died later that night.
