HANCOCK COUNTY, Iowa – A north Iowa man remains in serious condition at Mayo Clinic after a single vehicle accident.
The Iowa State Patrol says on July 19th, 31-year-old Nicholas John Moore of Crystal Lake was driving north on County Highway R-34 when he lost control of his vehicle. It entered the west ditch and rolled several times before coming to rest on its passenger side. The State Patrol says when they found the vehicle, a 2005 Cadillac CTS-V, the engine was no longer in the vehicle and the speedometer was stuck at 85 mph.
Moore was trapped in the vehicle and a state trooper says as he helped roll the car upright, there was the odor of an alcoholic beverage in the air. According to the crash report, Moore had reportedly gotten off work at the Crystal Lake Bar and Grill at 9:30 pm but stayed at the bar and “socialized” before leaving.
Moore was transported to the Britt Medical Clinic by ambulance, then taken by helicopter to Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa. Moore was then transferred to Mayo Clinic, where he is listed in serious condition.
