(Creston, Iowa) – The driver of a 2013 Dodge Caravan suffered possible/unknown injuries during a single-vehicle accident early Thursday morning. According to the Union County Sheriff’s Office, 43-year-old Michael Ray Bishop, of Cromwell, lost control of the vehicle at around 1:22-a.m. at Kingfisher Avenue and Highway 34 east. Authorities say the van went out of control due to the slushy road conditions, and speed.

The van left the highway to the south and struck a ditch embankment, causing $3,500 damage to the vehicle. Bishop was wearing his seat belt. He complained of pain/possible injury, but did not request treatment or transport to the hospital. No citations were issued.
