Vehicle Pursuit 12-18-23

On December 18, 2023 at around 8:04pm, the DCSO received a call in reference to a reckless driver going southbound on N14 at a high rate of speed.  A deputy located a vehicle going westbound in the 2500 block of A34 going over 100 mph.  When the deputy attempted to pull the vehicle over, it continued on at a high rate of speed.  A pursuit of the vehicle ensued and went into Clay County.

The pursuit ended east of Spencer near the intersection of 230th Avenue and Highway 18.  Ashford Williamson VI was driving a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro.  He was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to the Dickinson County Jail.  Williamson was charged with eluding, excessive speed, fail to obey stop sign, and operating without headlights when required.

The DCSO was assisted by the Milford Police Department, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Spencer Police Department, Iowa State Patrol, and Boji Tow.

All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Developed in collaboration with the Dickinson County Hunger CoalitionDickinson Behavioral Health Coalition, and ISU Service Learning students, the goal of the Crisis Navigation Guide is to provide additional context to the content found in the Dickinson County Resource Guide.  It contains five, one-page resource sheets focused on the following areas:

  *   Food Insecurity
  *   Housing and Homelessness
  *   Mental Health
  *   Substance Abuse
  *   Transportation

While it is not an exhaustive list, we hope the Crisis Navigation Guide provides individuals and organizations with a place to start.
