Police say a semi driven by Scott Schneiderman, 50, of Marshalltown, and a pick-up driven by Randol Simons, 50, of Union were stopped in a construction zone, waiting for a pilot car, when a car driven by Lisa Johannsen, 19, of Wellsburg rear-ended the pick-up, shoving it into the semi.

Johannsen told police that her brakes didn't work.

Simons was taken to Grundy County Memorial Hospital and then transferred to Allen Hospital in Waterloo for leg and shoulder injuries.

Johannsen had minor injuries but refused treatment on the scene.

Schneiderman was not injured.
