Argument leads to single-vehicle crash
According to Dubuque police, an argument between a driver and her passenger led to their car crashing into the median at the 151/61 overpass around 12:38 p.m. last Saturday.
The 23-year-old woman and her male passenger were fighting over whether or not the woman should pull over and let the man out. The woman says she does not remember what started the argument but that she refused to let the man out of the vehicle at that location because “he didn’t know where to go because he was from out of town.”
Over the course of the argument the man grew frustrated and jerked the steering wheel out of the woman’s hands while the vehicle was traveling on the highway, crashing it into the median. The man said he did not realize that this would happen because he did not have a driver’s license and had never driven a car.
Both the man and woman were taken to Finley Hospital nearby and released soon thereafter. The woman suffered a broken ankle and has since filed a complaint against the man for being caused a serious injury by a vehicle.
