CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Police have released the names of the five people hurt in a crash last week on the southwestern edge of Cedar Rapids.
Officers responded around 8:20 p.m. Thursday to a two-vehicle accident at the corner of Edgewood Road and 76th Avenue SW. Police said a sport-utility vehicle driven by Yolanda Campos, 50, of Fairfax, was westbound on 76th Avenue SW when she ran a stop sign and hit a car that had been southbound on Edgewood Road SW.
The driver of the car, 50-year-old Kathleen Wright of Swisher, suffered "very serious" injuries, police said. She was transported to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, where no information was being released on her condition Tuesday.
Three passengers in Wright's car were also hurt: Bruce Wright, 50; Bruce Wright Jr., 21; and Katherine Grabe, 19, all of Swisher. They were taken by ambulances to Mercy Medical Center. Campos was transported to St. Luke's Hospital.
Sgt. Cristy Hamblin, a police spokesperson, said she did not have any information about the medical conditions of the people involved.
Investigators were still reviewing the incident this week. No charges have been filed at this time.
