Iowa Sheriff Says He Deserved Ticket

Posted: Updated:

An eastern Iowa sheriff says he's to blame for a collision between his unmarked vehicle and a pickup on an access road to a firing range. The accident occurred August 26 at the Big Hollow Recreation Area in Sperry.

Des Moines County Sheriff Mike Johnstone says his sport utility vehicle hit an oncoming pickup on a sharp bend of the road when he looked away at something in a camping area.

He says he's already paid the $200 fine.

The Iowa State Patrol investigated the collision at his request. No injuries have been reported.
