Alcohol & Speed Led To Fatal
Crash South of Amery
Just after 3am Saturday morning, the Polk County
Sheriff’s Office received a report of a vehicle overturned in the ditch on
State Trunk Highway 46 north of 35th Avenue in Black Brook Township. On the first officer’s arrival, a small fire
was observed in the vehicle, which the officer was able to extinguish. The officer located one occupant in the
vehicle with no signs of life.
The investigation of the crash scene found that
Chazz L. Hiben, age 21 of Downing was traveling northbound on Highway 46 at a
very high rate of speed when he lost control of his vehicle. The Hiben vehicle began to rotate in a
counter clockwise direction and left the west side of the roadway, overturned,
striking trees in the ditch where the vehicle came to rest. Hiben was extricated from the vehicle and was
pronounced dead by the Polk County Medical Examiner. Alcohol and speed are believed to be
contributing factors in this crash. The
Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Amery Police, Fire and EMS at the crash
scene. This crash remains under
investigation by the Polk County Sheriff and Medical Examiners Offices.
