Black Hawk County Crash Injures Six Near Waterloo
Six people were injured in a single-vehicle accident southeast of Waterloo early Thursday morning (May 4, 2017).
Black Hawk County sheriff's deputies responded to the crash near the intersection of Weiden and Rottinghaus Roads around 12:30 a.m. Upon arrival, officials discovered that a pickup truck had left the roadway and rolled over in a ditch.
Sheriff's officials said there were six passengers in the vehicle, five of whom were transported to Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo for treatment of various injuries that weren't believed to be life-threatening. The sixth passenger refused medical treatment at the scene. The victims weren't identified.
Authorities determined the pickup was driven by Jesse Hall, 19, of Cedar Falls. Sheriff's officials said Hall was travelling northbound on Weiden Road when he lost control of the vehicle, causing the accident.
Hall was taken to UnityPoint-Allen Hospital in Waterloo, where he was treated for minor injuries. Following his release, sheriff's officials transported Hall to the Black Hawk County jail and charged him with driving with a revoked license and driving with a suspended license. He was also cited for failure to maintain control of the vehicle.
