Smithville Firefighters help DeKalb EMS load wreck victim into ambulance

A crash on West Broad Street near Walmart Thursday night resulted in injuries to two people.

49 year old Michael Langtimm and 67 year old Marilyn Leck both of Smithville were transported to DeKalb Community Hospital by DeKalb EMS.

Sergeant Andy Snow of the Smithville Police Department told WJLE that Langtimm, driving a 2008 Ford Escape, was exiting the Walmart parking lot at the traffic light. From the turning lane, Langtimm was attempting to make a left turn to go west on Broad Street when he was struck in the driver side door by a 1998 Toyota pickup truck, driven by 39 year old Brad Johnson of Smithville who was traveling east on Broad Street.

Leck was a passenger with Langtimm. 46 year old Robert Rochefort of Smithville was riding with Johnson.

The Toyota truck came to rest facing west on the highway. The Langtimm vehicle came to a stop off the highway on an embankment.

Langtimm was trapped inside the Ford Escape. Members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department's Extrication Team were called to the scene and removed the driver's side door of Langtimm's vehicle so that they could get him out.

Johnson and Rochefort were not injured.
