Monticello Driver Injured in Linn County Collision

A Monticello driver was injured in a collision in Linn County on Friday morning.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says emergency personnel responded to a two-vehicle accident around 6 am at Highway 13 and Secrist Road on the southeast side of Marion.

Deputies and officers arrived on the scene to discover a vehicle on its top in the median and a second vehicle with front-end damage on the shoulder of the southbound lanes of Highway 13.

An investigation revealed that a car driven by 26-year old Ryan Holub of Cedar Rapids was southbound on Highway 13 when he struck the back of another southbound car driven by 63-year old Dennis Burds of Monticello, causing both vehicles to go out of control.

Burds was transported to a local hospital for what authorities believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Holub was cited for Failure to Stop at a Safe and Assured Distance.
