VOLUNTARY STATEMENT

==================================================================

CASE #: 96-83155

DATE: 01/04/97

LOCATION: Cedar Falls Police Department

TIME STATEMENT STARTED: 1930 hrs.

NAME: Abels, Amy M.

DOB: 10/24/74

ADDRESS: Waterloo, Iowa

TELEPHONE OF PERSON GIVING STATEMENT:

EMPLOYER: Optometrist/Dr. Krieger

STATEMENT TAKEN BY: Robert J. Michael, Police Officer / MA83

==================================================================

On 10/04/96 at about 11:00 P.M. I was traveling southbound on Hwy 58

and was approximately 200 ft. behind a vehicle I lager learned to be an

'88 Olds Cutlass, occupied by Juli Farrell, Tammy Kleineksel and Kristina

Hill. We had a flashing yellow light at the intersection. I saw what I

later learned to be a Toyota 4Runner traveling west on Greenhill Rd. It

appeared to me this vehicle was traveling very fast. I could tell that

it was not going to stop at the flashing red light. I think the driver of

the Cutlass could tell the 4Runner was not going to stop because I saw the

break lights of the Cutlass come on. It looked like the driver of

the Cutlass tried to swerve to the right at the last minute. The driver of

the 4Runner did not try to stop unit it saw the Cutlass, which I

estimated to be right after it entered the intersection. The 4Runner

then tried to turn south on Hwy 58 to avoid hitting the Cutlass. After

the collision I turned east on Greenhill and hesitated on whether or not

I should stop. I knew that it was a serious accident and somebody needed

to call for help. I drove up to a house on S. Main St. and called 911

from there.
