The Page County Sheriff’s Office reports a Shenandoah man was cited for Failure to Maintain Control, and arrested for OWI/1st Offense, following a rollover accident early Sunday morning about half-way between Clarinda and Shenandoah. Sheriff Lyle Palmer says 37-year old Jason Howard Dickerson was being held in the Page County Jail. Dickerson was arrested after deputies were dispatched to the scene of the accident on Highway 2, near J Avenue, about 7-miles west of Clarinda, or 8-miles east of Shenandoah. When they arrived on the scene, officials found Dickerson’s 1997 Ford Explorer in the ditch near the vehicle, and Dickerson nearby.

After an investigation, it was determined that Dickerson had been travelling west on HWY 2 when he lost control of the SUV, which entered the south ditch,  and rolled onto its top.
