    • 4 killed in 2 county accidents
      By Ann Riley, The Hawk Eye


      Four Burlington area residents were killed Sunday night in two separate weather-related accidents that occurred less than 10 minutes apart in Des Moines County.

      Killed were Michael Pohren, 51, and his ex-wife, Sandra Kay Pohren, 48, both of Burlington, and Robert William Bratton, 67, and his wife, Lois Mae Bratton, 65, of Route 4, Timberline Estates, West Burlington.

      The first accident occurred at about 8 p.m. Michael Pohren was headed east on U.S. 34 about three miles east of Danville when he lost control of his 1990 Nissan pickup truck and slid sideways into the path of a westbound 1987 International tractor-truck.

      The driver of the tractor-truck, Nelson Neighbors, 36, of Indiana, was treated and released from Burlington Medical Center. Slick road conditions caused Pohren to lose control, according to the Iowa State Patrol. More than 3 inches of snow and rain fell on southeast Iowa over the weekend.

      Pohren's vehicle was totaled, and damage to the tractor-truck was estimated at $12,000. All three people involved in the accident were wearing seat belts. No charges were filed, and the state patrol is continuing its investigation.

      Less than 10 minutes later, another fatal accident occurred on Iowa 99 six miles north of Burlington.

      According to the Des Moines County Sheriffs Department, the Brattons were traveling south down a hill on Iowa 99 at 8:10 p.m. when Robert Bratton lost control of his Plymouth, swerved into the northbound lane and hit a Ford Taurus driven by James W. Williams, 50, 442 North Cedar Street, Wapello, head on.

      Williams and his wife, Janet Williams, 50, were listed in stable condition this morning at Burlington Medical Center. The Williams were wearing seat belts; Bratton and his wife were not.

      The road was 100 percent snow- and ice-covered at the time of the accident. The Des Moines County Sheriffs Department is listing the cause of the accident as weather-related. It remains under investigation.
