ADAMS COUNTY (KWWL) - The Adams County Sheriff's Office and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation are investigating a stabbing that happened early Friday morning.

Just before 2 a.m. Friday, the sheriff's office received a call reporting two vehicles trying to run each other off the road. Authorities made contact with both vehicles and discovered there was a male subject in the second vehicle with stab wounds.

The subject was transported to Mercy Hospital in Corning, and later taken by air to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines due to critical injuries sustained in the assault.

It was determined the male subject had been involved in an altercation with Kirk Frederick, 47, of Corning at a rural residence outside of Prescott.

Authorities are not releasing the victim's name, but say Frederick has been charged with Willful Injury causing Serious Injury and Going Armed with Intent.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office and DCI are continuing to investigate the incident.
