Man arrested for attempted murder

Three children were taken to the hospital after a DeKalb County crash Saturday. 

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department says 19-year-old Cody Bute was driving west on SR 8 in the 4200 block on a curve before he crashed.  The driver says his truck began to slide.

Police say Bute’s truck slid off the roadway into a utility pole, flipping and came to a rest on its roof.

Inside the vehicle were three children ages 7, 2, and 7 weeks.  They were all transported to the hospital.

The 7-year-old was in the front passenger seat without a child seat, and received lacerations and bruising.  Both the 2-year-old and 7-week-old were in car seats in the back seat, and did not have any injuries.

Bute did not receive any injuries.
