Highway 5 January 28, 2013

One woman was transported to Iowa Methodist in Des Moines after a one-vehicle accident this morning. A red Ford Focus struck a tree after losing control on an s-Curve on Highway 5 north of Marysville. Traffic was blocked for nearly an hour-and-a-half as responders extracted the woman and cleaned up the scene of the accident. Fog is believed to have played a contributing role in the accident. Fire and Rescue Departments from Bussey, Indiana Township, and Lovilia responded to the scene, as did Pella Ambulance and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. KNIA/KRLS will bring you more information as soon as it becomes official.
