CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

At about 2:15 a.m.  on December 29 emergency crews were dispatched to an accident involving two semis at Hwy 13 and Hess Ln.

A 2002 Freightliner semi driven by Debra Kiser Age 62 of Nebraska had been north bound on Hwy 13 when she was rear ended by another north bound semi driven by Joe Lomax age 63 of Des Moines. Lomax was driving a 2006 International Semi north bound when he failed to see Kiser's truck was pulling off to the side of the road with its flashers on and struck the rear trailer of this vehicle.

Both Kiser and Lomax were transported to Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids by Area Ambulance with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

Accident remains under investigation by the Linn County Sheriff's Office. Due to the accident, the north bound right lane of Hwy 13 from Blaine's Crossing to Hess Ln is closed at this time.
