NE Iowan Faces Charges from Rollover Accident
A Sumner man faces several charges after crashing a car in rural Fayette County.
At about 11:30pm Wednesday (Oct. 14th) the Fayette County Sheriff responded to a one-car rollover, east of Waucoma on Scenic Road. When officers arrived, the driver and any other people associated with the accident had left the scene.
While deputies were trying to find the location of the driver, authorities received a 911 call the next morning, advising the sheriff that a man needing medical attention from an accident, was at a residence near Fort Atkinson.
Authorities determined that 23 year old Isaac Nieto of Sumner was the driver; he was taken to the Decorah hospital to be treated for his injuries.
He faces pending charges of failure to maintain control and driving while his license is suspended.
The accident remains under investigation, and more charges are possible.
