An Oelwein man is being charged with causing a one-vehicle accident in rural Fayette County.


It happened shortly after 8am Tuesday (Nov. 7), west of Arlington at the intersection of 90th Street and "G" Avenue. The Fayette County Sheriff received a report that a vehicle was in the ditch, against a culvert.

An investigation concluded that the driver, 20 year old Enrique Trujillo Jr. of Oelwein, was driving west when he lost control, drove into the ditch, and hit the culvert.

No one was injured, but there was $5,000 damage to the 2011 Chevy Malibu.

Trujillo was charged with Failure to Maintain Control.
