Oelwein man charged in four wheeling accident


An Oelwein man is charged following a four wheeling accident that sent one person to the hospital.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says someone involved in an accident near V Avenue and 130th Street showed up at Community Memorial Hospital in Sumner at 5:00 a.m. Wednesday.

Deputies found a pick-up truck in a ravine in the middle of a field near 130th Street.

After an investigation, deputies determined that Torrey Willie, 29, had been four wheeling in the field with some friends when the pick-up went over a ravine, into a creek and collided with the embankment.

One of the passengers was taken to the hospital.  Deputies say the others fled the area.

Willie is charged with reckless driving.  The accident remains under investigation.
