Meet The Team

    LAMOTTE, Iowa - A driver is being treated for life threatening injuries after losing control of his vehicle and crashing into a utility pole.

    Brian Jordan of Maquoketa, 32, was traveling on 250th Ave into LaMotte, when he failed to make a curve to the right. Jackson County police say Jordan panicked, braked, and over-corrected the vehicle causing his 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix to slide sideways off the right side of the road. Jordan's vehicle then struck a utility pole broadside.

    Jordan was the only person injured in the crash. He was extricated from the vehicle by the LaMotte rescue squad and transported to Mercy Hospital in Dubuque, Iowa.
