Butler County crash injures driver


DES MOINES, Iowa – A Clarksville man was injured in a one-vehicle accident Thursday afternoon.

The Iowa State Patrol says 65-year-old James Harland Leerhoff was hauling a grain wagon with a pickup truck on County Road C-13 in Butler County.  The truck went off the road, through the ditch and through a fence before hitting a tree.  The wagon detached from the pickup during the crash.

Leerhoff was transported by Clarksville EMS to the Waverly Health Center.  The State Patrol says it does not appear that he was wearing his seatbelt.

This accident happened around 3:11 pm.
