On Tuesday, February 25, the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office received report that a vehicle had apparently damaged a fence at Trans Ova Genetic Advancement Center, four miles north of Sioux Center.
Upon further investigation the Sheriff’s Office says they discovered that sometime between Monday, February 24 at 4:00 PM and Tuesday, February 25th at 9:00 AM, someone was apparently driving a vehicle southbound on Highway 75. The driver apparently lost control of the vehicle and it entered the west ditch, striking a fence owned by Trans Ova Genetic Advancement Center. The driver and vehicle then left the scene of the accident.
The fence received about $500 damage.
Pieces of the vehicle were recovered at the scene. The headlights found indicate the damage was caused by an older vehicle, possibly late 1980’s to early 1990’s. There were also pieces of the vehicle’s grill at the scene with the word “Plymouth” on it.
If you have any information about this incident, you are asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office.
