Teen Driver Injured in Sac County Rollover ; Drug-Related Search Warrant Executed

A teenage girl was injured in a single-vehicle rollover accident in Sac County last week.

According to the Sac County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened this past Tuesday, August 9th around 8:20am just east of Lake View. 17-year-old Ashlyn Arbegast of rural Lake View was traveling south on Otter Avenue in a 1997 Ford Explorer when she lost control. The vehicle entered the east ditch, slid sideways, and rolled at least twice before coming to rest on the driver’s side.

Arbegast was wearing a seatbelt, and was able to get out of the car on her own. She was taken to an area hospital by private vehicle with non-life threatening injuries.

The Sac County Sheriff’s Office was also involved in a drug-related search last week.

This past Wednesday evening, a search warrant regarding controlled substance violations was executed in an upstairs apartment at 409 Center Street in Wall Lake. The investigation focused on the tenant, 23-year-old Braiden Ehlers, who was found inside the apartment. Law enforcement seized marijuana, scales, packaging materials, smoking devices, and a small amount of cash.

Charges are pending in the case. The Sac County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Lake View and Sac City Police Departments.
