CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A Newhall man was hospitalized and a Cedar Rapids woman faces charges after a crash Monday morning. 

The Linn County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened just before 7:00 a.m. at the intersection of 16th Ave. and 80th St. SW.  Authorities say 30-year old Erin Yakish failed to yield and was broadsided by a car driven by 29-year old Kevin Shepherd.  Yakish's van rolled onto its side.  Shepherd was taken to Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids for non-life threatening injuries.  Yakish refused treatment and was charged with failing to yield upon entering the highway.
