The condition of the driver of the third vehicle, 35-year-old Joshua Friendshuh of Belle Plaine, is unknown.

According to the incident report, the road conditions were wet at the time, but it is unknown if it was a factor in the crash.

    I see people with similiar names running red lights all the time. In other countries they dont have traffic lights. I dont know how they can legally drive here. The state is tougher on people born here than on people from 3rd world countries.
