A Kalona man was cited after going off the road in a single vehicle wreck in Henry County.

According to the Henry County Sheriff’s Office at about 11:40 p.m. September 18th deputies responded to reports of a jack-knifed commercial motor vehicle that left the roadway on Highway 218 near mile marker 42. An investigation determined that 32-year-old Jerome Miller was travelling south on Highway 218 when he failed to negotiate a slight turn in the road. The vehicle left the roadway striking the guard rail and slid to a stop between the mile marker 42 overpass. The vehicle stopped against a chain link fence bordering the railroad right of way. Miller was cited for failure to maintain control of a motor vehicle, a simple misdemeanor.
