Ashton, Iowa — A Sibley man was taken to an area hospital in the aftermath of a single-vehicle accident near Ashton Sunday night.

According to the accident report from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the crash occurred about 8:00 Sunday evening when a northbound 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, driven by 59-year-old Michael Block of Sibley, was northbound on Highway 60 at Ashton. Deputies say Block apparently lost control, striking a concrete bridge railing with the car’s front bumper and rear quarter panel. The report says the car then spun out of control past the bridge and came to rest blocking both northbound lanes of Highway 60.

Deputies say Block was transported by ambulance to the Osceola Regional Health System in Sibley.

He was reportedly cited for Failure to Maintain Control. Damage to the Monte Carlo was estimated at $3,000.
