On 05/13/2022 at 12:21 p.m. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a vehicle in the ditch at the intersection of 530th Avenue and 400th Street. Upon investigation it was determined on 05/13/2022 at around 1:00 a.m. a red 2006 Chevy Impala registered to and driven by Adam Nicholas Leuer of Emmetsburg was southbound on 530th Avenue. Leuer failed to realize he was coming to a T- intersection when he reached the cross street at 400th Street. Leuer would drive off the T-intersection and entered the south ditch. The Chevy would sustain front end damage.
Damage to the Chevy is estimated at $8,000.00. Leuer would receive minor injuries but not seek medical attention. Leuer was cited for failure to prove security against liability (accident related), operation without registration, failure to maintain control and failure to wear safety belt, all simple misdemeanors.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
