HARTINGTON — Attempted murder suspect Kevin Haug is still receiving medical treatment after being injured while fleeing from law enforcement last Tuesday.

Because of his injuries, Haug, 44, has still not been able to be charged in Cedar County Court.

Haug was apprehended last Tuesday after a high speed chase with South Dakota and Nebraska law enforcement officials ended in a car accident at the intersection of Highway 81 and 84.

Kevin Haug was driving a U-Haul truck when it collided with a semi-trailer truck at the intersection. The accident took place during a police chase down Highway 81.

Haug is being accused of allegedly stabbing James Olson in Fordyce the morning of July 2.
