Polk County Jail Chief Leesa Shoemaker continues to recover at home from injuries received in a car-bicycle accident near Polk City on May 12. She spent a little more than a week in the hospital. Sheriff's Deputy Jana Rooker said a ticket for failure to properly overtake a vehicle was issued to the driver of the car, Jerry Culbertson, 57 of Bagley. Sheriff's officials said the accident happened on Iowa Highway 415 south of Polk City when Bagley' vehicle struck the southbound bicycle about 4:30 a.m.. Shoemaker suffered serious injuries in the accident. She was wearing a helmet at the time. Rooker said the helmet likely saved her life. Polk County Sheriff Bill McCarthy said earlier that Shoemaker frequently rode to work on her bicycle. He said she had blinking lights on her clothing when she was hit in the early morning.
