Independence Man Arrested after Rollover Accident

One person was arrested after a rollover crash in Buchanan County this past weekend.

The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to an accident northeast of Hazelton at the intersection of 100th Street and N Avenue around 7:30 am Saturday. No one was there when deputies arrived.

An investigation showed a vehicle driven by 45-year old John Williams of Independence was westbound on 100th Street when he lost control. His vehicle went into the ditch and rolled over, coming to rest upside down.

Williams was later located in Lamont and taken into custody. He has been charged with driving with a suspended license and failing to maintain control.

Williams was also arrested on two active arrest warrants out of Buchanan County for failing to appear and violating probation.
