Two Lake View Residents Dead After Sliding Broadside Into Semi Tuesday Morning

Two Lake View residents are dead after losing control of their vehicle on frosty road conditions Tuesday morning. At approximately 8:10 a.m., 73-year-old William Fewell, of Lake View, was northbound in a 2008 Dodge pickup on M54 about five and a half miles northeast of Lake View and going around a curve when he lost control and slid across the center line. The pickup collided broadside with a southbound semi-tractor trailer, driven by 42-year-old Maxwell David Stall, of Lytton. Fewell’s passenger, 65-year-old Peggy Behrens, of Lake View, was pronounced dead at the scene, and Fewell was air-lifted to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City by Mercy Air Care where he later died. Stall was uninjured in the accident. No charges are pending at this time, and the Iowa State Patrol is currently conducting an investigation into the accident.
