Patrick Kaufenberg admits he was shaken up at the scene of his own accident Sunday on Highway 34 near Casey's General Store.

But he said he's pretty sure he didn't tell state troopers he and his wife were arguing in the couple's van before she tumbled out the passenger side onto the pavement.


"Geez it makes us look pretty bad," he said of the patrol report that indicated the couple was involved in a domestic disturbance.
