Greene County Dealt With Two Single-Vehicle Accidents In Two Days

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office responded to two single vehicle accidents within two days. The first occurred at approximately 11:47 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 19 southeast of Scranton. Twenty-one-year-old Faith Rose Wiederin of Jefferson was traveling westbound on 240th Street in a 2014 Chevrolet Impala when the steering wheel locked up. The car crossed into the eastbound lane, left the roadway and damaged a fence before coming to rest on private property. There was an estimated $6,000 in damage to the car and about $500 to the fence. No injuries were reported. The second accident occurred at approximately 2:35 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20 near the intersection with U.S. Highway 30 and Y Avenue, east of Grand Junction. A Boone County Sheriff’s Office Deputy was the first to arrive on the scene, and found a 2005 Ford F-150 in the north ditch on its passenger side. Twenty-four-year-old Dalton Zachariah Haggerty of Page, Fla. was reportedly traveling east on Highway 30 when he reached down for an item and lost control. Tire marks showed the vehicle had been in the south ditch, then crossed the road into the other lane and entered the north ditch. Haggerty showed signs of intoxication and was arrested on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Damage to the truck was estimated at $14,000. Greene County Emergency Medical Services and Grand Junction Fire and Rescue also assisted at the scene.
