A man from Dickeyville is facing his
fourth charge of drunk driving after a
one-vehicle crash late Saturday night
on Highway-151 in southern Grant County.
Authorities say 38-year-old Shelby Blindert
was taken to UnityPoint Health-Finley Hospital
in Dubuque for treatment of severe, but
non-life threatening injuries.
Blindert was reportedly driving north on
Highway-151 when his vehicle went off the
road. It hit a metal guardrail, bounced-off
it and then went airborne across the two
south lanes of the highway, coming to a
stop after hitting a concrete barrier.
While investigating the crash, a deputy
discovered Blindert was drunk. He’s also
been cited for not wearing a seat belt and
for driving without insurance. He was
released to a responsible party due to the
severity of his injuries.
Helping at the scene of the crash were
police from Dubuque, Dickeyville Fire and
Dickeyville E M S along with Donnie’s Tire
and Tow of Dickeyville.
