More information is available about a May 20 rollover accident in Vail that was reported in the Police Beat in Friday’s Review and was based on a sheriff’s office incident report. According to the accident report filed at the law enforcement center, Tanner Reynold Hagge, 23, of Vail, was driving a 2015 Polaris Razor UTV south on Bergen Street in Vail at 12:15 a.m. on May 20. Two passengers, Katie Lyn Hausman, 21, of Halbur, and Lexas Marie Petersen, 21, of Harlan, were in the UTV, one sitting on the other’s lap. Hagge failed to stop at the stop sign before turning left onto 3rd Avenue. The vehicle was traveling too fast to complete the turn safely, started to skid sideways and eventually rolled onto its right side, the accident report states. Hagge was helped by some people that came running to the scene from a local establishment. He suffered a skin laceration on the back of his neck. The passenger who was sitting on the seat was then helped out of the UTV; she suffered a concussion and lacerations. The accident report states that Hausman was transported to Crawford County Memorial Hospital by law enforcement. The other passenger had to have the UTV lifted and was pulled from under it. She suffered a broken nose, fractured vertebrae and other injuries. Petersen was transported by a helicopter to a hospital in Omaha, Nebraska. The accident report said alcohol was a factor in the crash. In addition to citations for reckless driving and failure to maintain control that were listed in Friday’s Police Beat, Hagge was charged with failure to provide proof of finance liability – accident related, and OWI 1st offense. According to Iowa Courts online, Hagge was released on $1,000 bail on May 21 and had an initial appearance on May 24.
