Three people were injured in an accident shortly before 7 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 67 about one mile south of Folletts in Clinton County, according to the Iowa State Patrol. 

Gary Dale Korver, 76, of Clinton, was driving a 2011 Ford F150 truck northbound on U.S. 67 while Paul William Possehl, 23, of Princeton, was driving a 2003 GMC 1500 truck southbound on Highway 67.

Possehl apparently lost control and crossed the center line, striking Korver’s truck head-on. Korver’s truck came to rest in the east ditch, and Possehl’s truck came to rest on its side in the middle of U.S. 67.

Korver was transported by Medforce Helicopter to University Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City. Korver’s passenger, Dorothy Korver, 72, of Clinton, was transported by ambulance to Genesis Medical Center, East Rusholme Street, Davenport. Possehl was transported by ambulance to Mercy North in Clinton.

Condition reports of the victims were not available Sunday.

The accident remains under investigation by Iowa State Patrol. Scott County Sheriff’s Department officials temporarily closed U.S. 67 from County Road F 33 to County road Z36, one mile north of Princeton, while emergency responders were at the scene of the accident.

Iowa State Patrol officials say that seatbelts saved the lives of all three people involved.

I know Gary and Dorothy personally and they are two of the nicest people you'd ever want to know. Thank God they were wearing the seat belts. Get well quick Gary & Dot. I do not know the other man but he caused the accident and I hope the law comes down very hard on him.
