Authorities in Audubon County say an accident which occurred early last Thursday morning about seven-miles southeast of Exira remains under investigation, and charges are pending. The Sheriff’s Office reports 19-year old Ben Gerald Irlmeier, of Audubon, was traveling north on Quail Avenue at around 3-a.m., when he lost control of the 2005 Toyota he was driving. The vehicle entered the east ditch, through a fence and rolled several times before coming to rest on its right side.

Irlmeier, and his passengers, 21-year old Dilan Olesen, and 21-year old Molly Boylan, both of Exira, were transported by private vehicle to Audubon. Boylan was later brought to the Audubon County Memorial Hospital, also by private vehicle. The Toyota sustained $17,000 damage.
