On 4/9/22 at 7:36p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was called to the intersection of 440th Ave/360th St. for a report of a single vehicle accident with unknown injuries. After an investigation, it was determined that a 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer, owned by Brian and Allison Rooney, and operated by a juvenile male, was northbound in the 3500blk of 440th Avenue. The driver lost control of the vehicle, slid through the intersection of 360th St/440th Avenue and then struck a bridge just north of the intersection. This caused an estimated $8,000 damage to the Trailblazer.

There were no injureis as a result of the accident.

The juvenile male was issued a citation for failure to obey a stop sign, a simple misdemeanor.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
