CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Rapids woman is in the hospital after a man drove through a stop sign overnight.

It happened around 10:45 p.m. on Saturday at the intersection of Gibney Road and Ellis Road west of Cedar Rapids.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office said 52-year-old Ken Kuhse was southbound on Gibney Road when he disobeyed a stop sign, drove through the intersection and into the south ditch of Ellis Road. 

Kuhse was wearing a seatbelt at the time. 

He wasn't hurt but his passenger, 54-year-old Victoria Pfeiffer-Kuhse, was sent to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. She wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Police arrested Kuhse for several charges including operating while under the influence, failing to obey a stop sign and failure to maintain control.
