MASON CITY – A Mason City man was cited for three offenses after a two-vehicle accident Wednesday on Mason City’s South Side.

The accident took place at South Benjamin Avenue and 19th Street at about 12:45 PM. A 1994 Chevy Beretta driven by 37 year-old Charles Gene Barnish of Mason City appeared to have been struck from behind by a vehicle driven by a Mason City woman, 35 year-old Elva Mireya Bravo Nava.

At least one person was transported by ambulance to Mercy Medical Hospital.

Barnish was cited at the scene for: Driving under suspension; failure to carry proof of insurance; and failure to yield upon a left turn.  Barnish has at least three convictions for operating while intoxicated on his lengthy arrest record, which also includes a number of felonies for violent crimes.

    I was the passenger that was ambulanced to the hospital, there was a semi that was stopped and turning Charles didn’t care what was on the other side of the semi he did t care if I was injured he just was worried about getting caught he sped off down the street and realized the bumper was falling off so he was gonna get pulled over either way. That’s the only reason why he stopped.

    I think the reason is he was driving illegally and if he was following the law he would not have been there. It is always their fault if they are driving with a suspended license. The problem is he has no insurance so either she will pay or her insurance will pay. She still loses more than he does as he won’t pay his fines anyway.
