Man hospitalized and woman jailed after personal injury accident

A man was hospitalized and a woman was jailed after an accident at Park and Washington Streets in Inwood, Iowa. The Lyon County accident occurred around 2:00 a.m. last Sunday, November 6.

According to preliminary investigations, a 25-year-old Kerkhoven, Minnesota woman was trying to exit a place of residence in Inwood when her boyfriend tried to get inside her vehicle as the vehicle was moving. He was allegedly dragged for half a block without the woman knowing about it before he was finally dislodged from the vehicle. The Lyons County Sheriff’s Office reported the woman did not stop when she discovered the incident, and she left the scene of the accident. The man was taken to Canton Inwood Hospital to receive medical treatment for his serious injuries. Meanwhile, the woman was charged with reckless driving, a simple misdemeanor, and failure to stop at a personal injury accident, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Iowa State University and new company team up to build better football helmets

An Iowa State University student has teamed up with Cross Over, a new company started by two Iowa residents, a television producer and a financial adviser, two neighbors from Carroll.

The two are worried about the future of football if the safety of the sport is not improved. That’s why they started working on ideas and partnering with engineering students at ISU to design an effective and safe football helmet to prevent concussions. This movement came to fruition in June with the university’s new program, The Startup Factory. The Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa executive director said parents and athletic medical staff are increasingly worried because no one knows how many concussions one person can take. He noted that he “applauds anybody who tries to develop a better safety device.”
