Extricating driver from car at mile marker 53, Hwy 151.

Car vs Semi = No Contest

At a notoriously dangerous intersection, a car apparently tried to "beat" a semi and lost. With road construction restricting the four lane to one lane north bound, rush hour traffic complicated the rescue scene. The driver had to be extricated and then Life Flight took her to St Luke's in Cedar Rapids.
