A two-vehicle crash in Linn County Tuesday morning, sent two people to the hospital and closed County Home Road, near Highway 13, for more than an hour.

Sergeant Harvey Hall says that Susan Koch, 46, of Central City, was westbound on County Home Road, about a half-mile west of Highway 13, when she lost control and hit an eastbound van head-on.

The driver of the van, Shane Thomas, 29, of Alburnett, had to be extricated from his van.  He was taken to St. Luke's Hospital with serious injuries.  Koch was taken to Mercy Medical Center.
