On January 13, 2020, at 11:28 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a single vehicle accident at the intersection of N-28 and Highway 18. Upon investigation it was determined a 2004 Ford Excursion owned by Mosquito Park Enterprises LLC, operated by Jonathon Collins (32) of Milford, IA., was northbound on N-28 approaching the stop sign intersecting with Highway 18. The Ford was pulling a 29-foot boat and trailer when Collins lost control. The Ford slid across the southbound lane and entered the west ditch which caused the trailer to jackknife causing an estimated $25,000 in damage to the Ford and Sea Ray Boat. No injuries were reported at the scene. Collins was issued a citation for failure to reduce speed to reasonable and proper rate.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
