A young Northeast Iowa man is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries that he sustained in a weekend traffic accident in Fayette County.

At about 11:30pm Saturday (June 10), the sheriff received a report of a vehicle in a ditch along Apple Road, a mile east of Clermont.

An investigation determined that 21-year-old Daniel Streeter of Fayette was driving west when his car entered the north side ditch.

Streeter was initially taken to the West Union hospital to be treated for life-threatening injuries; he was then airlifted to Gunderson Lutheran in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.

The vehicle, a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT, was totaled.

The accident is still under investigation by the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.
