Badger, Iowa — A single vehicle roll-over accident is being investigated by the Humboldt Sheriff’s Department.

The accident occurred Wednesday morning near Badger.

Law enforcement officials say Robert Fowler was driving northbound on Penn Avenue, just crossing over the Webster County line into Humboldt.

Fowler fell asleep at the wheel and swerved into the southbound lane. He then over-corrected and rolled multiple times.

Fowler was taken to the Humboldt County Memorial Hospital for observation. Sheriff Dean Kruger believes injuries were minimal.

The Humboldt Fire Department and Humboldt County Memorial Hospital EMS were also at the scene assisting the Humboldt Sheriff’s Department.
