Winneshiek Sheriff Investigates ATV Accident
Winneshiek County authorities continue to investigate a two-vehicle accident in which a teenager was injured while riding an ATV.
It happened Saturday, June 20th at about 8pm, on Centennial Road in Bloomfield Township, near Castalia.

Bakken was charged with Failure to Provide Proof of Insurance.
There was a total of $3,000 in damage to the 2002 BMW 321 and 2007 Honda ATV.
