Humboldt, Iowa — A single vehicle accident did not result in any injuries following a rollover last Saturday.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office says the accident took place near C49 and 270th Street at about 2:45 p.m.

According to the report, the accident involved 22-year-old Carlos Orozco of Yuma, Arizona.

Orozco told police he was eastbound in the 1000 mile of 270th Street when freezing rain and snow began to fall.

His vehicle subsequently lost control on the road, entered the south ditch and rolled before coming to rest on it’s wheels.

Due to visibility concerns and deteriorating road conditions, the vehicle was not removed from the ditch until Monday of this week.

Law enforcement did say in the report that Orozco was driving too fast for conditions.
