A Sioux City man remains hospitalized with numerous injuries after he was struck by a pickup truck early Sunday morning.
Police say 31 year old William Kammerer was riding his bicycle around 5am Sunday on the city's westside when he was struck by a pickup.
Investigators say Kammerer became caught under the truck and was dragged 150 feet. The pickup then ran over Kammerer as he got loose and dropped
to the roadway.
The driver of the truck then drove away. Officers found the pickup truck later, and arrested a Sioux City man.
21-year old Fernando Garcia is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failing to yield and not having insurance.
Kammerer sustained several broken bones and other injuries. He is hospitalized at Mercy Medical Center in serious condition. The investigation of the accident is continuing.
A Siouxland woman charged with drowning her 15-month-old son has been formally charged with first-degree murder.
The Monona County attorney's office filed the charge against 24-year-old Ashley Cameron, of Onawa, on Thursday.
She's scheduled to be arraigned May 14. Cameron is charged in the Feb. 11 death of Markis Dahms.
She was arrested on April 18. Police say Cameron held the toddler under a running faucet in the bathtub in their home until he drowned.
The boy was found dead after officers responded to an emergency call about a child who wasn't breathing.
An autopsy later determined the boy had drowned and his death was a homicide. Cameron is represented by the state public defender's office in Sioux City.
