COUNCIL BLUFFS, Ia. -- A Hutchinson couple facing animal cruelty charges is hospitalized following an accident in Iowa. The accident happened Monday night in Council Bluffs.

Bradlee Ellis told Council Bluffs police he was driving a tractor trailer rig and fell asleep. The semi rolled onto its side. The semi was carrying cattle.

Ellis and passenger Emileigh Martens were taken to Creighton Medical Center for treatment.

Ellis and Martens were arrested by Hutchinson police on animal cruelty charges earlier this month. Police said the couple took turns throwing a kitten against a wall, causing a fatal head injury. Police said the couple was upset because the kitten had urinated inside their home.
