Iowa State Patrol says a crash on Hwy 218 near Janesville was caused by a car traveling in the wrong direction. 

A silver Kia Spectra driven by Agnes Procter, 77, was headed northbound in the southbound lanes around 1:30 p.m., Tuesday.

Megan Holm, 36, of Minneapolis was driving southbound on Hwy 218 when she swerved to avoid a head on collision with Procter.

Holm's red Ford Escape side swiped Procter's car, ending up in the median.

Procter's silver car stopped in the southbound lanes of Hwy 218.

Procter was taken to a near by hospital. Her condition has not been released.

This is the second crash on Tuesday involving a wrong way driver on a highway.
