Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a possible injury accident near 18251 B. Road in western Jackson County early Saturday morning.

Just before 5:00 a.m. Saturday it was reported that a car was in the ditch with its wheels spinning and another vehicle on fire.

Deputies arrived to the scene and arrested 32 year old, Adrian Ramirez of Hiawatha.

Deputies believe Ramirez’ vehicle caught fire after he wrecked it near the residence.

Ramirez then allegedly entered a shed, and stole a 1997 Chevrolet pickup from the residence in which, he crashed again just past the end of the victim’s driveway.

Jackson County Fire Departments and EMS were able to put out the fire from the car and grass.

When deputies found Ramirez, he was huddled with his 4 year old child hiding in the pickup bed of the Chevrolet pickup.

Ramirez was medically evaluated and transported to the Jackson County Jail where he was booked in on the following charges: burglary, felony theft, felony DUI, aggravated child endangerment, driving without an interlock device, and failure to report an accident.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s department said the child is okay and was not injured.

Bond on Ramirez is pending at this time.
