Sutherland, Iowa — A Sutherland man was taken to the hospital after an accident near Sutherland.
The O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 5:19 PM on Thursday, May 19, 2016, 70-year-old Alan Vogel of Sutherland was driving a 1999 Ford pickup northbound on Van Burren Avenue, north of Sutherland.
The report says that Vogel stopped to pick up a can on the shoulder and exited the vehicle. The report says Vogel apparently didn’t get the vehicle in park and the pickup’s open door knocked him over and the pickup rolled past him and into the ditch.
