Hit & Run

Tue 5-11-2021

A hit and run accident was reported on US 71 just north of the Iowa border on Saturday. Jackson County Sheriff Deputies responded to the call and found a 2007 Dodge Ram pickup parked in a field approach. When deputies backtracked the tire tracks it was determined the pickup was southbound on US 71 near 715th St where it struck a stop sign as it entered the west ditch. The vehicle drove out of the west ditch and entered the ditch on the east side where it rolled once. The vehicle was some how able to still drive out and ended up in the field approach where it was found parked and unoccupied. The vehicle was towed from the scene and the case remains under investigation.
