His vehicle crossed the center line and struck an eastbound vehicle head on. The driver of that vehicle, 78 year old Gerald Jones of Edgewood and his passenger 70 year old Jeanette Jones of Edgewood were transported to Regional Medical Center in Manchester and then transferred to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
