A man from West Union was injured after his vehicle was involved in a single-car rollover accident just northeast of Independence, Iowa.
According to officials with the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Department, the incident took place on 155th Street just after 2:30 p.m. when the driver of a 2008 Buick Lucerne lost control while traveling westbound on the roadway.
After losing control, the vehicle flipped and rolled over off the side of the roadway before finally coming to stop in a ditch. The vehicle rolled one and a half times before stopping on the roof of the car. The man was transported to Buchanan County Health Center in order to be treated for injuries sustained. Emergency crews have described the man’s injuries as minor.
