The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 2:40 AM, just into Sunday morning (2/24), 25-year-old William Reuter of Melvin was driving a 1991 Dodge pickup eastbound on 230th Street, three miles so//uthwest of Ocheyedan. Twenty-eight-year-old Gabriel Hall of Sheldon was driving a 1995 Chevy westbound on 230th. The Sheriff’s report says Reuter intentionally swerved into the westbound Chevy colliding in the westbound lane. Reuter did not want subjects in the Chevy to enter his property because of family members in the house. The Chevy left skid marks approximately 100’ to avoid collision.
The vehicles’ front ends hooked together in the collision. Reuter put his vehicle in reverse but was unable to free the Chevy by pulling it in a zig zag manner. Both vehicles ended up in the north ditch on their wheels.
There were possible minor injuries.
Reuter’s Dodge pickup sustained $2000 damage. The Chevy driven by Hall was owned by Nikole Anthofer of Bagley IA, and also sustained $2000 damage.
Reuter was charged with reckless driving. Hall was charged with no driver license, leaving the scene of an accident, criminal mischief and open container.
