DAVENPORT, IOWA (December 2, 2022) — On Thursday, December 1, 2022 at approximately 6:22PM, the Scott Emergency Communication Center received a call of a single-vehicle accident in the area of the 26500 block of 257th St, Princeton, Iowa. The Scott County Sheriff’s Office Accident Investigation Team responded to the scene, and an investigation was conducted.

The initial investigation found that a camouflage 2022 CFMOTO 800cc UTV was traveling eastbound in a cornfield on the south side of 257th St. The UTV lost control, appears to have struck a fence, and rolled into a ditch. The UTV was being driven by a 54-year-old male from Princeton. It was also determined that the UTV had five passengers riding in it ranging from ages eleven to nineteen years old. Two of the passengers had to be flown to Iowa City by Medforce, while the driver and three other passengers were transported by Medic EMS to Genesis Hospital for medical treatment. All occupants of the UTV are in stable condition at this time. The accident remains under investigation by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office Accident Investigation Team.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office, Scott Emergency Communication Center, Medic EMS, Medforce, LeClaire Police Department, Princeton Fire Department, and McCausland Fire Department, all assisted with the accident.
