Single Vehicle Accident

On Saturday June 25, 2016 at 4:36am the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office reiceved a 911 call involving a single vehicle accident northwest of Cylinder, IA. The Deputy arrived on scene to find Devan Faye Demory (18) of Whittemore standing outside of her upside down vehicle. Demory was driving east in the 5200 block of 380th St when she lost control of her 2008 Pontiac G6, entering the north ditch, then overturning the vehicle onto its top. Demory only sustained minor injuries in the crash. The vehicle is considered a total loss. The damage is estimated at $10,000

During the investigation on scene the Deputy had reason to believe alcohol was involved in the accident and checked the sobriety of Demory. Demory was brought into the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office for further testing. She was released after she tested above .02 but less than .08 blood alcohol levels. Due to the fact Demory is under the age of 21, she was given an .02 Violation.

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