Authorities in Montgomery County say one person was transported to the hospital for treatment of unknown, possible injuries, following a collision Tuesday afternoon south of Red Oak. The Sheriff’s Department says the crash happened just after 4:30-p.m., at the intersection of Highway 48 and 270th Street.

According to the Sheriff’s report, the collision occurred as a vehicle being driven by 56-year-old Rebecca S.
