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.
