At 5:34 a.m. on October 29, 2018, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office investigated a single vehicle car accident in the 3900 block of 470th Avenue. The Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office determined Alex Bailey (22) of Emmetsburg was northbound on 470th Avenue driving a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am when he lost control of the vehicle and entered the west ditch and rolled on to its top.
Bailey was not injured in the accident and was issued a citation for failure to maintain control, a simple misdemeanor. Damage to the Grand Am was estimated at $5000.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
