Sheriff: Truck, bail trailer collides in Cascade

Authorities responded to the area of Johnson Street and 6th Avenue NW for a report of a two-vehicle accident at approximately 5:37 p.m. Nov. 8, according to a report from the Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office.

The report states Marty Rausch, of Cascade, was traveling southbound on Johnson Street pulling a single-row bail trailer when he was struck by Stephen Weber, of Cascade.

Weber was facing north on Johnson Street waiting to turn left onto 6th Avenue after Rausch passed, but Weber stated he did not see the bail trailer, which did not have sidelights.

The trailer was pulled from the scene with a bent axle and Weber’s vehicle was towed by Lyons. Weber was cited for failure to yield upon left turn.
