According to a report from the Effingham County Sheriff’s Department, the accident occurred on North US Hwy 45, one-tenth of a mile north of 400th Avenue. The report stated that a vehicle driven by 20 year old, Logan M Smith, of Flora was traveling north on US 45 when he lost control of the vehicle.
