Two Jones County residents were injured in a multi-vehicle crash on Wednesday night.
It happened in Cedar Rapids near Highway 13 and Summit View Lane shortly before 5:30 pm. The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says 27-year old Catherine Fritz of Anamosa failed to stop for backed-up traffic and struck the rear of two other vehicles. Fritz was trapped in her vehicle, requiring mechanical extrication from firefighters.
She and her passenger, 34-year old Matthew Mayberry of Wyoming, were transported to St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids with what authorities believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
Two people from the other vehicles involved went to the hospital to be checked for possible injuries.
Fritz was cited for failing to stop within an assured clear distance.
