Car crashes, rolls in local lawn

A local couple awoke to a close call last week when they heard a crash and then saw a car had rolled over in their lawn.

Bryan Vasquez, 21, of Marshalltown, was arrested a little after 1 a.m. Wednesday at 405 W. State St. for an OWI, failing to remain control and failing to have a valid driver’s license.

According to a police report released Monday, Vasquez was found standing by his car that was laying on its side.

“Well that’s something you don’t see everyday,” Chantel Woerner, a resident at the house said.

“There was alcohol involved which really twerks me off because there’s a serious lack of responsibility in owning up to one’s actions in this town, it breaks my heart to see that, people don’t think of consequences.”

According to the police report the crash resulted in $1,500 worth of damages.

“It cracked our sidewalk, shredded our front lawn and took out our flower pots,” Woerner said.

“The car rolled up hill to our neighbor’s house. It hit their house and broke the side of it.”

No injuries were reported in the accident.
