On June 30, 2019, at approximately 1:48 a.m. the Crawford County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call of a one-vehicle traffic crash on County Rd K near The Crooked Oar, in Prairie du Chien Township.

A 2015 Toyota Tacoma driven by Beau M. Winters, age 24, of Maynard, IA was northbound on County Rd K when Winters lost control of the vehicle and crossed the center line. The vehicle then left the shoulder of the roadway and struck a trailer house. The front end of the truck became wedged under the trailer house and Winters was pinned in the driver seat of the vehicle. At the time of the crash, the trailer house was unoccupied.

Witnesses ran to the scene from another nearby residence. While on the scene, Winters was able to borrow a phone and make a phone call. During this time, Winters was able to get himself free from the vehicle on his own. As Law Enforcement and EMS were approaching the scene Winters fled on foot taking the borrowed phone with him. Winters was not able to be relocated and had suffered unknown injuries in the crash. Witnesses gave a direction of travel to Law Enforcement once they arrived on the scene. It was later determined that Winters got a ride away from the scene.

Witnesses stated that the Winters vehicle was going well over the posted 35 MPH speed limit just seconds before they heard it crash into the trailer house.

The vehicle was towed by Milos Towing, the vehicle sustained heavy damage and the trailer house had moderate damage. Winters was later contacted and found to have only suffered minor injuries from the crash.

Winters was issued citations for Failure to Notify Police of an Accident, Hit and Run Property Adjacent to the Highway, Unreasonable and Imprudent Speed, Failure to Maintain Control, Left Of Center and Meddling/Destruction of Property (cellphone) resulting in restitution for $1,000.
