On 10/21/2018 at 2:21 a.m., The Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a vehicle roll-over accident that occurred in the 4500 block of 390th Street. Upon an investigation, it was determined that a 2001 Cadillac Deville, owned and driven by Brian David Wickman, age 20 of Mallard, was traveling southeast and negotiating a curve when a deer emerged from the ditch area and onto the roadway. Wickman veered to miss the deer and lost control of his vehicle which then entered the north ditch, overturned and came to rest on its top.
Wickman, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, was checked at the scene by the Palo Alto County Health System and then transported to the Palo Alto County Hospital. The investigation continues by the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office. The Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Emmetsburg Police Department and the Palo Alto County Ambulane Service.
