MALVERN, Iowa (WOWT) - The Mills County Sheriff’s Office deputies cited an 18-year-old after a crash on Sunday south of Malvern left a car and a bridge with damages.

The driver, an 18-year-old from Sidney, Iowa was cited for reckless driving and leaving the scene of a property damage accident. The driver also was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

Deputies found an empty car with “significant disabling damages” between 330th St. and 350th St. by the Nishnabotan River after responding to the area for a crash on the Wabash Trace Bicycle Trail around noon Oct. 31.

They say Brandon Darnold Towing recovered the car and there was “sustained significant damage” to the wooden railroad bridge.
