The Adams County Sheriff’s office reports the arrest of a Nodaway man following a traffic accident early Tuesday morning. Officials say 19-year-old Johnathan Locke, of Nodaway, was taken into custody, after an investigation into the crash. Locke was traveling eastbound near 2107 Corning Carl Road at around 12:20-a.m. Tuesday, when he swerved to miss a deer. The vehicle entered a ditch and hit a driveway before it vaulted into the air and hit a utility pole. The pole fell into the north ditch and set it on fire.  Locke and a passenger in the vehicle, Hannah Cross, of Corning, suffered minor injuries during the crash. 

Locke was picked up later in the day Tuesday, on an Adams County warrant. He was charged with driving while suspended, public intoxication, minor in possession, and interference with official acts.
