A Central City woman was injured after the truck she was riding in crashed in a farm field.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office says deputies were called to 1300 Leona Lane southeast of Central City at around 10:39 p.m. for a report of accident.

Deputies say 25-year-old Shawn Delbert Port was driving a truck in a farm field when he lost control and hit a tree.

Port refused medical treatment, but 23-year-old Amanda Rae Turner, a passenger in the truck, was taken by Lifeguard Helicopter to St. Luke's Hospital.

Turner's injuries are not considered serious.

Deputies say neither Port nor Turner were wearing their seat belts.

The accident remains under investigation.
