George, Iowa — A Sibley man was injured and then charged with three offenses, and his passenger faces a felony charge after an accident early on Saturday east of George.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 5:50 AM, 58-year-old Dennis Post of Rock Valley was driving a 2003 Freightliner semi owned by Hartland Farms of Doon, eastbound on County Road A34, about five and a half miles east of George. Twenty-eight-year-old Cesar Segura of Sibley was westbound driving a 2003 Dodge Dakota pickup. Just west of A26, Segura crossed the center line and was sideswiped by the semi truck. Segura’s vehicle went into the south ditch, went through a fence, and came to rest in a bean field. Post was able to control his semi and came to a stop on the roadway.

Cesar Segura was taken to Sanford Rock Rapids Hospital.

The semi sustained about $1000 in damage. The pickup was totaled.

Segura was later arrested and charged with Driving with No Drivers License, Crossing the Center Line, and Failure to Have Insurance.

The Sheriff’s office reports that alcohol was a factor, so further charges are pending.

A passenger in Segura’s vehicle, Antonio Mares of Sibley fled the scene on foot. Later that day, about 6:00 PM, Mares was picked up by a Lyon County Deputy near the scene of the accident. He was subsequently arrested for Falsifying Public Documents, a Class D Felony — for possession of a fake ID and a fake social security card.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by the George Fire Department and George Emergency Medical Service.
