According to a Creston Police report, Lee was in a 1997 Ford westbound on West Howard Street approaching a stop sign, stopped at the sign and pulled forward and paused before pulling out into the intersection, where he did not see a 2013 Ford driven by Mark Eugene Chubick, 54, of Creston, who was traveling north on North Lincoln Street and had the right of way. Chubick said Lee did not stop and he attempted to avoid the collision by steering to the right but couldn’t because of the snow on the roadway.
