Dust cloud blamed for Benton Co. crash

Posted: Updated:
BENTON COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Iowa State Patrol says a cloud of dust helped cause a crash in Benton County Monday.

It happened around 4:30 p.m. Monday on 59th St. Trail.

Troopers say a trail of dust from a passing vehicle temporarily obscured the vision of 49-year-old Danny McDaniel of Shellsburg.

When the dust cleared, McDaniel came in contact with another vehicle driven by 30-year-old Jennifer Mathews of Center Point.

McDaniel's SUV went into the ditch, while Mathews' SUV flipped onto its top.

Mathews was airlifted to a Cedar Rapids hospital.

McDaniel was treated for his injuries and released.
