On 09/15/2020 at 7:30 P.M,. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s was dispatched to the 5200 block of 370th for a single vehicle rollover accident. Upon completion of an investigation it was determined that a 2012 Toyota 4Runner, owned by Erin Carrigan of Emmetsburg, was west bound negotiating the curve when an animal entered the roadway. The vehicle was being operated by a juvenile male. The driver swerved to avoid the animal and left the roadway. When the driver attempted to bring the vehicle back onto the roadway the passenger side of the vehicle collided with the guardrail on the bridge, and the momentum of that collision flipped the vehicle onto the driver’s side. The driver reported possible minor injuries and was examined by EMS on scene.
The Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the Palo Alto County Ambulance Service and the Cylinder Fire Department.
