UPDATE: Car accident in Cedar Rapids

Posted: Updated:

One car in Cedar Rapids is wrecked after crashing into a pole. 

The Cedar Rapids Police watch commander says it was a one vehicle accident, possibly caused by a medical condition.

Our crew on scene says one person was taken on a stretcher.

Neighbors on scene tell KWWL this accident is the 3rd or 4th time an accident has been on the corner.

Alliant Energy representative on scene says they're very lucky the car took down a line that was not powering any particular place, so there are not power outages.


Cedar Rapids Police are working an accident in Cedar Rapids at the intersection of 1st Ave SW and 18th Street.

We have a crew on the scene and it looks like a green car somehow ran into the stop light pole.

We're not sure if there were any injuries.

Our crews are working to get more information and will update this story as we get it.
