Wed 7-3-2019

A one vehicle accident early yesterday morning resulted in possible injuries to a Heron Lake man.

Shortly after 12am Tuesday, a Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to a one vehicle rollover on County Road 9, near the intersection of 850th Street south of Okabena.  21 year-old Christopher Preston of Heron Lake was driving a 2007 Chevy Silverado and lost control, entered the east ditch, then crossed County Road 9, went into the west ditch and struck a power line pole owned by Federated Rural Electric.

Preston was transported by a private individual to an area hospital with possible injuries.  The pickup sustained heavy damage and was towed from the scene.
