Accident sends six to the hospital

Pella —  

On Monday March 4, at 12:53 a.m., the Marion County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a single vehicle roll over accident, approximately two miles west of Pella, near the intersection of Hwy. 163 and 195th Ave.   Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies, Pella Police, Pella Ambulance, and Pella Fire and Rescue personnel responded to the scene.

The investigation showed Aung Myint, of Marshalltown, was headed westbound on Hwy. 163 when he lost control of his 2000 Mazda Van, due to weather related conditions.  The vehicle entered the north ditch of Hwy. 163, rolled and came to rest on its side.  All six (6) occupants of the vehicles were transported to the Pella Regional Hospital and treated for, what appeared to be, non-life threatening injuries. 

No citations were issued and this accident remains under investigation by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
