Two hurt in crash on Highway 13 near Coggon


Two people, including a 15-year old driver, were injured in an accident near Coggon on Tuesday night.

Linn County deputies responded to a two car accident at the intersection of Highway 13 and Hutchinson Road at around 10:50 p.m.

Sergeant Jim Gales says Kammie Lynn Vogel, 15, was headed north on Highway 13 when she pulled to the right side of the road after seeing emergency lights.  Gales says that after Vogel realized the lights were not meant for her, she pulled back onto Highway 13 and then turned left onto Hutchinson Road, right into the path of a car driven by Lila Jean Thomas, 54, of Earlville.

Vogel was taken to Mercy Medical Center by family with minor injuries.  Thomas was taken to St. Luke's Hospital via ambulance with minor injuries.

The accident remains under investigation and Gales says charges are pending.
