A northeast Iowa man is now jailed on charges he caused a deadly crash this week and ran away from the scene. Forty-one-year-old Earl Hiland of Dubuque County was arrested Wednesday at a Dubuque hotel.
The county sheriff says Hiland was driving the pickup that crossed the center line of a highway near Sageville on Tuesday night. The pickup sideswiped a car which was broadsided by a van. The Wisconsin man driving the car was killed, while the van’s driver was injured and trapped in the wreckage.
Hiland allegedly fled the crash on foot. He faces several charges, including: leaving the scene of a fatal accident and driving on a revoked license.
