Single Vehicle Rollover Accident 5-31-22

On May 31, 2022 at around 9:25pm, the DCSO responded to a rollover accident in the 2400 block of 190th Street.

A 16 year old male, of Wallingford, was eastbound on 190th Street, driving a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander.  The driver looked at his phone and then passenger side of the vehicle entered the shoulder portion of the roadway.  The driver then panicked and overcorrected, losing control of the vehicle.  The vehicle then entered the south ditch, rolled, and came to rest on the driver’s side.  The driver was momentarily trapped inside.  Law enforcement was able to get the driver out of the vehicle.

The driver sustained minor or non-incapacitating injuries and was cited for failure to maintain control.  The vehicle was considered a total loss.

The DCSO was assisted by the Arnolds Park Police Department, Okoboji Police Department, Milford Police Department, Lakes Regional Healthcare Ambulance, and Boji Tow.
