Accident is county lands man in hospital

Sheriff's deputies were called to the scene of a serious accident out in the county. Sheriff Terry Wagner says 20 year old Dakota Orthengren lost control of his car around 6:30 Thursday morning on the corner of 120th and Van Dorn. They say that's where the road turns from gravel to cement.

The man who owns the land where the accident happened says drivers speed down the road all the time.  “They don't observe the speed limit I know that I've seen that myself when we work with machinery down here and I go down here because most of my land is down here,” Wayne Schroeder said.

The sheriff says after the vehicle lost control it rolled and landed in the ditch. The driver was taken to the hospital where he remains in stable condition. Authorities are on the scene investigating whether alcohol was a factor. The Sheriff did say they found beer on the scene.
