A Manchester man was injured in a Buchanan County crash last weekend.

It happened last Sunday shortly before 5 pm in the 1800 block of Golf Course Boulevard northwest of Independence. The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office says Kyle Schmidt was driving his car eastbound when he lost control on a curve – his car went into the ditch and struck a driveway, going airborne and coming to rest in a residential yard.

Schmidt was injured and transported to Buchanan County Health Center before being transferred to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

The accident remains under investigation and charges are pending.
