One injured in Linn County accident


A Cedar Rapids woman was injured Friday morning when she pulled into the path of a car at County Home Road and the C Avenue Extension.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection just after 8:30 a.m. Friday.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office says Marion E. Hazleton, 85, of Cedar Rapids, was headed north on the C Avenue Extension and stopped at the stop sign, but then pulled into the path of a westbound vehicle driven by Alex Vanpraag, 23, of Marion.

Hazleton was taken to St. Luke's Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.  Vanpraag was not injured.

Deputies say a utility pole was hit during the accident, causing the warning lights over the intersection to be destroyed.

The accident remains under investigation.
