Sheriff’s officials in Harrison County say a Logan man was injured during a rollover accident on Sunday evening. 23-year old Brian Jeffrey Hemenway was traveling westbound on Highway 30 in a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix, when he lost control of the car at around 6:20-p.m., while attempting to pass another vehicle. The out of control Pontiac hit the left rear of a 2007 Saturn Aura, driven by 46 year old Anthony Lindner, of Odebolt, causing Lindner’s car to skid to the left shoulder of the road, while Hemenway’s vehicle skidded into the south ditch.

As the Pontiac entered the ditch, it rolled at least 5-times before coming to rest on its top. Hemenway was transported by Logan Rescue to Missouri Valley Hospital for what officials said were non-incapacitating injuries. An update on his condition is not available. Lindner was uninjured in the crash. Damage to Hemenway’s Grand Prix was estimated at $1,500 while Lindner’s Saturn was $8,000. Hemenway was cited for unsafe passing and failure to maintain control.
