The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 8 AM on Thursday (3/22), 27-year-old Whitney Lucas of Sioux Falls was driving a 2010 Toyota Prius, southbound on Highway 60, approaching the intersection of 100th Street — the state line road. Thirty-seven-year-old Hussein Warfa of South Sioux City, Nebraska, was driving a 2001 Chevrolet Impala, westbound on 100th Street and pulled out in front of Lucas’ vehicle.
