The Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Jacob Huinker was headed north on 245th Avenue, near Conover Road, when he lost control of the ATV on a curve. Deputies say Huinker told them he was driving at a high rate of speed and forgot about the curve.

Deputies say Jacob carried Effie to a nearby home to get help.

Jacob was charged with failure to maintain control and illegal operation on a public roadway.
