The Sheriff’s Office says it happened at the intersection of Dugan Avenue and 220th Street west of Independence. A car driven by 39-year old Todd McCloud of Oelwein was northbound on Dugan Avenue when he failed to stop at the stop sign. The car went through the T-intersection and into the ditch, where it catapulted into a field and rolled several times.
McCloud and a juvenile passenger were initially transported to Buchanan County Health Center. The passenger was later airlifted to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City in serious but stable condition. McCloud was later transferred to St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids with non-life-threatening injuries.
The accident remains under investigation and charges are pending.
