Coggon Woman Injured in Highway 13 Collision

A Coggon woman was injured in a collision on Highway 13 a little before noon Saturday morning.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says 78-year old Linda Rowell of Edgewood was southbound on Highway 13 when she failed to stop at the stop sign at County Home Road. She struck an eastbound vehicle on County Home Road as it was turning north onto Highway 13.

Rowell was not injured.

The driver of the other vehicle, 70-year old Linda Beckman of Coggon, was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids with what authorities believe were non-life-threatening injuries.

Rowell was cited for defective braking equipment and failing to obey a traffic control device.
