One person was killed and another injured when two vehicles collided head-on Friday morning on Highway 1 between Mt. Vernon and Solon, according to the Linn County Sheriff's Office.

Sgt. Richard Yoder says a vehicle driven by 49-year-old Morris Roberson of Iowa City was headed north on Highway 1 near Ivanhoe Road when it crossed the center line just after 6 a.m. Friday and hit a southbound vehicle driven by Diana Marie Coultas, 46, of Lisbon.
