The Fayette County Sheriff is charging a motorist with causing a recent one-vehicle rollover, just east of Oelwein.


It happened on October 24th shortly after 10pm, on Neon Road, south of Highway 3. 19 year old Hunter Clark of Carlisle told authorities that he swerved to avoid an animal in the road, lost control, and the car entered a ditch and rolled. Clark was treated at the scene. His 2000 Buick Park Avenue had $3,500 in damage.

Following an investigation, Clark was given a citation for Failure to Maintain Control.
