Two people, one with serious injuries, were taken to area hospitals after a car collided with a truck Tuesday morning in central Scott County.
The accident happened shortly after 10 a.m. at 170th Avenue and St. Ann’s Road. According to the Scott County Sheriff’s Department:
A 1999 Mercury pulled out from the stop sign on 170th Avenue to go east on St. Ann’s Road and was struck by a 2011 Ford F 150 traveling west on St. Ann’s Road. A MedForce helicopter transported the driver of the Mercury, who is believed to have been seriously injured, from the scene. A Medic EMS ambulance transported the driver of the Ford.
Both 170th Avenue and St. Ann’s Road are blacktop roads. St. Ann’s Road is a through highway with a 55-mph speed limit. Drivers traveling south on 170th Avenue are required to stop before they enter St. Ann’s Road, according to the sheriff’s department.
The sheriff’s department, whose Accident Response Team is investigating the crash, did not release the names of those who were injured.
