Ely collision results in arrest


Late Saturday night, the Ely Fire Department, as well as other local authorities were dispatched to a vehicle collision at the intersection of Ely Road and Prairie School Road, north of Ely.

Shane Schultz, 21, of Barnes City, driving a 1995 Chevrolet Lumina, was driving east on Prairie School Road, when he failed to stop at a stop sign at Ely Road. He struck a 2003 Ford F150, traveling southbound, driven by Jeffrey Rollinger, 36, of Shellsburg.

Schultz' vehicle struck the broadside of Rollinger's, causing it to roll, coming to rest on it's top, in the middle of the roadway.

Rollinger and a passenger were treated at the scene for what appeared to be minor injuries.

Schultz received a citation for failing to stop at a stop sign, and was arrested on suspicion of operating while intoxicated.

The incident remains under investigation by the Linn County Sheriff's Office.
