Reports from the Winneshiek County Sheriff

Winneshiek Sheriff 

Deputies responded to a residence on Evergreen Road near Decorah at 2:12 a.m. May 21 for a disturbance. Kyler Carnes, 31, of Decorah, was arrested and transported to the Winneshiek County jail for simple misdemeanor domestic abuse assault, 1st offense.

Carl Kriener, 61, of Waucoma was cited for reckless driving following an accident May 20 at 2:31 p.m. on Iowa Highway 24 E. Investigating officers reported the Kriener vehicle and another vehicle driven by 74-year-old Norma Hackman of Waucoma were both traveling west/south on Highway 24 just outside of Fort Atkinson. Hackman was slowing down to turn south (left) onto County Road W14. There were several trucks ahead of her vehicle. Kriener’s vehicle rear-ended the Hackman vehicle. Damages totaled $7,000 to Hackman’s 2018 Buick Enclave SUV and $2,500 to Kriener’s 2013 Chevrolet Suburban SUV. No injuries were reported.

A motorcyclist was airlifted from the scene of an accident on County Road V64 on May 25. Jordan Klimesh, 27, of Ridgeway, was northbound on County Road V64. Based on skid marks, it appeared the motorcycle veered to the right, possibly hitting some tar on the road at the intersection with Swan Road. Investigating officers reported the motorcycle attempted to correct, veering back into the lane, before losing control and veering off the roadway to the right. The driver was thrown from the bike, landing in a ditch. Klimesh was transported by Gunderson Air to Mayo Clinic.
