Hattan then lost control of his pickup truck and drove back onto the pavement and onto the north shoulder. The pickup then went back to the left and rolled over.

Injured was Hatten and a passenger Linda A. Hattan. Both were taken by ambulance to Ottumwa Regional Health center for treatment of injuries.

Hattan was charged with Failure to maintain control.
