MASON CITY – A drunk Belmond woman racing through town crashed her Monte Carlo into a Mason City house, causing thousands of dollars in damages.
A Mason City police spokesman tells NIT that officers responded to a report of a car that crashed into a house and then left the scene at 12:22 AM on September 23, 2021. Officers arrived and found a red 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo a short distance from the crash. The officers’ keen investigative skills led them to locate Glennisha Williams, age 30, of Belmond, near the vehicle. Williams’ vehicle had left the roadway as it was eastbound on 6th Street SW and then struck the residence at 217 6th Street SW.
As a result of the incident and investigation, Williams was charged with first offense operating while intoxicated, failure to provide proof of insurance, and failure to maintain control.
Williams’ car crash allegedly caused approximately $8,000 damage to the Monte Carlo and approximately $8,000 damage to the house located at 217 6th Street SW.
Earlier this year, Corey Martinson’s pickup truck was traveling eastbound on 6th Street SW, just a block away from the latest crash. It left the roadway and smashed through and destroyed a light pole and damaged a power pole. He fled the scene and was later guilty of failure to maintain control, costing him $210.25.
A bike rider crashed his bike on 6th Street SW some time ago, and a baggie of marijuana was once located nearby. A drunk driver was nabbed not just once, or twice, too, as well as a crazed meth criminal.
Tragedy once struck just feet away from this latest crash, when 5 teens were killed back in April of 2016. The driver of a Jeep Wrangler traveling no less than 79 miles per hour lost control and everyone in the vehicle died as a result of the fiery crash just north of Shopko on 6th Street SW / Highway 122.
