An Iowa man was seriously injured in a one-vehicle crash Saturday night that resulted in an OMVI and possible other charges, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.
On Oct. 3, at about 7:15 p.m., the sheriff’s department was notified of the crash on State Highway 35, about two-tenths of a mile north of Caya Road in the township of Seneca.
Steven Welch, 47, of Fairfax, Iowa, was operating a 2006 Ford Mustang north on Highway 35 when he lost control and struck a guardrail, causing the vehicle to overturn multiple times and come to rest in a creek. Fifty feet of guardrail was damaged during the crash.
Welch sustained several injuries in the crash and was transported to Crossing Rivers Health by TriState Ambulance for medical treatment and later transferred to Iowa City Hospital for continued treatment.
