The Adams County Sheriff’s Office reports a Villisca man suffered incapacitating injuries during a single-vehicle rollover accident this (Tuesday) morning in the western part of the County. 32-year old Dean Richard Orr was traveling north on Birch Avenue from Highway 34 at around 7:20-a.m., when his 1996 Buick Park Avenue slid through the intersection at 210th Street. The vehicle continued north on Birch. As it approached the T-intersection with 205th Street, the car went off the west side of the road.

When Orr overcorrected, the car rolled six times and landed in the north ditch. Officials say Orr, who was traveling too fast for the road conditions, was ejected from the vehicle through the side door window as the car rolled. He was transported by helicopter to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. He faces charges which include Driving While Suspended, Failure to Maintain Control, Failure to have Insurance, and not wearing a seat belt. His car was a total loss.
