The Iowa State Patrol says a Creston woman who lost control of her car and crashed in Union County Thursday night, was cited for OWI 1st Offense and Improper Use of Lanes. Officials say 49-year old Lori Ann Wray was traveling east on Highway 34/New York Avenue in Creston, at around 10:25-p.m., when the 2007 Dodge Caliber she was driving came into contact with the north curb of the road. Wray over corrected and lost control of the car, which left the road and rolled onto the drivers’ side and came to rest on its top against a pole for a billboard sign. Wray was transported to the Greater Regional Medical Center in Creston, treated, and later released. Damage to the car was estimated at $15,500.
