This hay bale didnt cause a crash, but it didnt belong in front of First English Lutheran Church either. The hay bale was picked up Jan. 6.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a pair of crashes in which vehicles hit hay bales left on roadways.

The second of the two took place Jan. 8 around 5:30 p.m., when Jason Pennekamp, 38, hit a hay bale on U.S. 151 at Grant County O as he was driving to Dubuque.

Pennekamp was not injured, but his car’s front end had to be replaced.

Anyone who has information on who was hauling or moving hay bales in the area of the crash is asked to call the sheriff’s department, 723-2157.
