Rollover near Rockwell


CERRO GORDO COUNTY, Ia – There was a rollover on Highway 65, near Rockwell today.

It happened at 4:24 pm. A Northbound vehicle, driven by Jaime Saenz, 17 of Mason City, went to pass another vehicle near a hill when Bonnie Wiederkehr was coming in her van from the South. Wiederkehr saw Saenz’s Mustang directly in front of her in time, because they were able to turn onto the shoulder, but not before getting side-swiped. Saenz then swerved and flipped the car, landing in a nearby field.

Wiederkehr and her passenger in the van were not injured, but Saenz was taken to Mercy Medical Center by ambulance for evaluation. He is being issued citations for speeding as well as unsafe passing.
