ANAMOSA – Three people were hurt in rollover crash on Highway 151 near Anamosa Friday morning.

Authorities said the westbound sport-utility vehicle rolled multiple times around 8:30 a.m., about three miles east of Anamosa near 180th Avenue. At least two people were ejected, an Iowa State Patrol trooper said.

The SUV stopped on its side on the inside shoulder of the westbound lanes. Both westbound lanes were closed around for about 25 minutes while troopers took measurements.

The accident victims, two males and a female, were taken by ambulance to an Anamosa hospital, and then flown by helicoptor to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, troopers said.

Troopers were unsure how serious the injuries were. One of the victims had a broken leg, they said.

All lanes of traffic reopened around 11 a.m.
