A four-vehicle accident in Page County led to two Wiota residents being hospitalized.

The Iowa State Patrol says four vehicles were traveling westbound on Highway 2.

A Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by 54-year-old Hugh Hollinrake of Adair was stopped and signaling to turn left onto county road M48.

A Dodge mini-van driven by 22-year-old Richelle Hollinrake of Wallingford was behind Hugh and didn’t see him turning and quickly braked to avoid hitting Hugh.

A Subaru Impreza driven by 24-year-old Patricia Houghton of Lamoni was behind Richelle’s vehicle and swerved onto the shoulder to avoid hitting Richelle.

A Kawasaki motorcycle driven by 26-year-old Jeffrey Lillard of Wiota was behind Houghton and tried to brake to avoid contact, but ended up hitting Richelle’s vehicle.

Jeffrey Lillard and his passenger Elizabeth Lillard, both of Wiota, were taken by ambulance to the Shenandoah Hospital.

Total damage from the mishap amounted to about $5,000.
