A woman has been airlifted via Mercy One after being involved in a two-vehicle accident east of Knoxville. At about 7:30 this morning, the woman was driving a white sedan southbound on T-17 when she pulled out in front of a blue pickup going westbound on Highway 92. The pickup didn’t have the opportunity to stop when the sedan pulled out in front of them. The condition of the sedan driver has not been released. Both occupants of the pickup had minor injuries and refused treatment. Authorities believe the sun may have been a contributing factor in the accident.
Clay Township Fire and Rescue, Knoxville City Rescue, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and the Iowa State Patrol also responded to the scene. KNIA/KRLS will bring you more information as soon as it becomes official.
