MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (KCRG) - A two-vehicle crash sent two people to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon, according to law enforcement officials.

At around 3:50 p.m., the Iowa State Patrol was sent to a report of a crash along northbound Iowa Highway 14, north of Marshalltown. Troopers believe that a 2018 Chevy 2500 pickup truck that was traveling northbound crossed the center line, colliding head-on with a 2000 Honda Civic despite its attempts to swerve out of the way.

The drivers of both vehicles were taken to area hospitals for treatment of injuries. Both were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Highway 14 was closed for a period of time on Tuesday while officials cleared the scene.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the emergency response.
