Driver Loses Control and Strikes Squad Car

Sheriff Thompson is continuing to urge motorists to exercise caution as another winter storm comes later this afternoon. The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office has been inundated with accidents over the last few weeks and many of these accidents have been preventable, most attributable to excessive speed when considering weather and road conditions. "Our best advice is not to travel when the road conditions deteriorate, if you must travel; we really need motorists to slow down" Sheriff Thompson said. Attached to this news release is a video of a collision that occurred yesterday on I-380 near Raymond, when two Black Hawk County deputies were at the scene of a car in the ditch. Another vehicle lost control and narrowly missed one patrol car and then hit the other patrol car. Fortunately, the deputy was out of his car and in the ditch and was not injured; the driver of the vehicle was not injured either.

On Saturday many of Pekin's police officers, firefighters, and AMT personnel joined children for a shopping spree at Big R. Many local businesses donated money so that each child could get all the toys they wanted with $100. Matt Sheehan TV has the full story.
