A north central Iowa law enforcement official is hospitalized after a horse riding accident last week.
Sixty-two-year old Dennis Hagenson of Webster City is the sheriff of Hamilton County. Last Wednesday, Hagenson was riding his horse just east of Webster City when the horse bucked him off.
He was first taken to Hamilton Hospital in Webster City and was later transferred to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines. Hagenson underwent surgery to repair a broken pelvis. It is not known when Hagenson will be released from the Des Moines medical facility.
Hagenson has been Hamilton County Sheriff for the past five years. He also served as a sheriff’s deputy and county conservation officer.
