Van catches fire after Hiawatha wreck

(KNZA)--No serious injuries were reported after a van caught fire following a two-vehicle wreck in Hiawatha Monday evening.

Hiawatha Police Chief John Defore says officers were dispatched to the wreck in the 200 block of Iowa Street around 6:30.

According to the accident report, a van had slide on the ice and struck a parked vehicle, with the van catching fire.

Upon arrival, officers observed smoke coming from van and Hiawatha fireman, Cory Lay, working to put out the fire.

Defore says the driver of the van, identified as Lisa McKinney, stated that she had swerved to go around the parked vehicle and slid on the ice, causing her van to lose control and strike the parked vehicle.

The wreck was cleared as a possible injury accident and remains under investigation.
