Police say a man from northeast Iowa was drunk when he rolled his vehicle with his children inside. It happened at about 2 p.m. Friday just north of Stanley.
Fayette County Sheriff’s deputies found a pickup that rolled over in the ditch, but no driver could be found. An investigation determined that Mark Fisher was driving too fast for the corner and lost control. Two children were also in the truck at the time and sustained minor injuries.
They were located later at Fisher’s home in Oelwein, taken to a hospital for treatment, then released. Fisher was arrested and charged with O.W.I., failure to maintain control and child endangerment. His wife, Rachel Fisher, was charged with interference with official acts for telling authorities that she was the driver at the time of the accident.
