The bodies of three men have been removed from the site of a collapsed
six-story apartment building, the police chief in Davenport, Iowa,
announced Monday. “We don’t have any other information at this time
that there are any additional people missing,” Chief Jeff Bladel said.
One of the residents injured in the collapse of an apartment building
sued the city of Davenport and the building's current and former owners
on Monday, alleging they knew of the deteriorating conditions and
failed to warn residents of the risk. The complaint filed on behalf of
Dayna Feuerbach alleges multiple counts of negligence and seeks
unspecified damages. It also notes that additional lawsuits are likely.
“The city had warning after warning,” attorney Jeffrey Goodman said in
an interview with The Associated Press. He called it a common trend in
major structural collapses he’s seen. “They had the responsibility to
make sure that the safety of the citizens comes first. It is very clear
that the city of Davenport didn’t do that.” Branden Colvin Sr.’s body
was recovered Saturday. The body of Ryan Hitchcock was recovered Sunday
and Daniel Prien early Monday. The discoveries came after authorities
announced that the search for survivors had been completed, with
attention turning to shoring up the remaining structure so recovery
efforts could begin.
On May 20th, 2023, at about 3:07 AM Linn County Sheriff's Deputies
responded to a report of a vehicle rollover on I-380 just south of
Cedar Ridge Road. Responders arrived to find a white Chevy
Venture Van on its top in the west ditch of the southbound lanes.
There were a total of three occupants in the van. All three
occupants were transported by Center Point and Hiawatha Ambulance to
St. Lukes Hospital in Cedar Rapids. One of the occupants was
pronounced dead at St. Lukes. The other two have
non-life-threatening injuries. The names of the occupants will be
released later pending notification of family. The crash remains
under investigation by the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.
A Dubuque woman is accused of intentionally setting fire to the
garage at her house on Saturday night. The fire happened just after
9:30 p.m. at a house in the 1700 block of Bristol Drive. Officers
arrested one of the residents of the home, 41-year-old Sondra Willis,
and charged her with second-degree arson. When asked by officers
whether or not she intentionally started the fire, Willis said she did.
She told officers she started the fire so she could "just get away."
According to court documents, during a later interview with officers at
the Dubuque Law Enforcement Center, Willis admitted to lighting the
garage on fire by "pouring gas cans across the garage and lighting the
fuel with a match." Authorities estimate the damage to the home is
around $100,000. Willis is currently in the Dubuque County jail.
Authorities are holding her on a $10,000 bond.
former Buchanan County Sheriff’s Deputy has been sentenced by a judge
after accepting a plea deal. A criminal complaint alleges that on
February 4th, 2022, Deputy Klint Bentley stopped a vehicle in rural
Buchanan County for speeding. Bentley asked the female driver to show
him her breasts and implied he would withhold issuing a citation if she
did. The female victim reportedly recorded the interaction during the
traffic stop. Bentley continued soliciting photos from her via text
message after the traffic stop concluded. On February 7th, 2022, the
Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office requested the Iowa Division of
Criminal Investigation look into the matter due to a conflict of
interest. On February 8th, Bentley was terminated.
On May 13, 2023 at approximately 2113 hours Dubuque County Sheriff’s
Deputies, Sherrill Fire, Holy Cross Fire and Centralia-Peosta Fire
responded to 17979 Route 3 for a reported UTV accident with
injuries. The investigation revealed that a 2012 Can Am Commander
was being operated in a field when it rolled. Ramsey Kernall
(24), of Dubuque, was transported by Sherrill EMS to Unity Point
Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Christian Ennis
(26), of Sherrill, refused medical treatment on scene. The
accident is still under investigation. The damage to the side by
side is estimated at less than $1000.
Two people were killed in a semi vs. train crash in Lisbon on Friday.
At around 1:30 p.m. a Mack 600 semi truck attempted to cross a railroad
in the 120th block of 115th Street, an Iowa State Patrol crash report
states. As the truck was crossing, an eastbound train struck the
driver’s side of the truck.
Both the driver of the truck and one person on the train were killed
during the crash, the Iowa State Patrol said. The victim’s names have
