On March 10, at 7:47 a.m., the Page County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a single motor vehicle accident with an injury approximately four miles north of Clarinda in the 1400 block of Redwood Avenue.
The investigation showed that Machelle Dawn Graham, 58, of Clarinda was operating and was the only person in a 1999 Ford Ranger traveling southbound on Redwood Avenue. Graham lost control of the vehicle, swerving several times in the road. The vehicle then started to roll on the west shoulder and ditch. The vehicle rolled before coming to rest in the west ditch on the passenger side. During the roll of the vehicle, Graham was ejected and was located by a passersby approximately 20 feet south of where the vehicle came to rest.
Graham was transported to Clarinda Regional Health Center with unknown injuries. Damage to the Graham vehicle was estimated at $3,000 and is considered a total loss. Charges are pending from this accident.
The Page County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Clarinda Police Department, the Clarinda Fire Department, Page County Emergency Management, and the Clarinda Emergency Medical Service.
