The Mills County Sheriff’s Office reports one arrest and one accident took place over the past week. 34-year old Jeremy Scott Carnes, of Pacific Junction, was arrested last Friday on a Warrant for Driving While Revoked. Carnes’ bond was set at $1,000.
And, on Friday, Alma Garcia, of Council Bluffs, was cited for Failure to Maintain Control and having No Insurance, following an investigation into an accident. Officials say Garcia was driving a 2008 Hyundai northbound on 188th street, when she tried to stop at the intersection with Hammond Avenue.
Authorities say due to speeding and road conditions, the car was unable to stop and slid through the intersection, into the ditch and through a wire fence. The vehicle was towed out by a friend. Garcia left the scene without contacting law enforcement. The owner of the fence noticed the accident and called the sheriff’s office to report it. The car was located the vehicle at 18146 Hammond Avenue. It had sustained heavy front end damage, including to the fenders and hood. A large chunk of the front bumper had also fallen off. Garcia told the investigating deputy she didn’t know she was supposed to call to report the accident.
