One person was injured during a single-vehicle rollover accident early this (Wednesday) morning, about six-miles east/southeast of Hamlin, in Audubon County. The Sheriff’s Department says 16-year old Joanna Camden, of Exira, was transported from the scene to the Audubon County Memorial Hospital by private vehicle.

Camden was a passenger in the 1999 Ford Ranger pickup, driven by 19-year old Benjamin Dale Dressler, of Anita. Officials say the pair were traveling north on Quail Avenue near 250th Street at around 7-a.m., when the speeding pickup began to fishtail on the gravel road. The vehicle ended-up sliding sideways into a ditch and rolling onto its side.

By the time authorities arrived on the scene, the pickup had been up-righted and driven away. Damage to the pickup was estimated at $1,000.

Dressler was charged with Failure to Maintain Control.
