CHARLES CITY, Iowa – A Floyd county man is pleading guilty for a summer auto accident.

Shawn Edward Gray, 44 of Charles City, was arrested on August 27 after he crashed into a tilt bed trailer and a car on D Street in Charles City. Police say Gray abandoned his vehicle in the middle of the street and was found a few blocks away.
