The Iowa State Patrol reports one person suffered serious injuries during a rollover accident this (Friday) morning, in Mills County. 31-year old Justin Knuckolls, of Pacific Junction, was flown from the scene of the crash at 287th and 286th Streets by LifeNet helicopter, to the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Knuckolls was ejected from the 1999 Ford Ranger pickup he was driving, when the vehicle went out of control at around 8:15-a.m., left the road and rolled over. Knuckolls was not wearing a seat belt.

Officials say accident happened as the pickup was rounding a curve in the road, which may have been slippery due to frost or black ice, although the report did not specifically indicate if road conditions played a role in the crash.
