A Nevada man was injured Sunday afternoon, during a single vehicle accident on Interstate 80, in Pottawattamie County. The Iowa State Patrol says 48-year old Duane Morgan, of Fallon, NV, was eastbound on I-80 near the Underwood exit, when he lost control of his pickup. The 2001 Dodge Ram crossed the median and continued across the westbound lanes into a ditch, where it hit several trees and traveled through a fence before coming to rest in a cornfield.

Morgan was transported by Underwoood Rescue to Mercy Hospital, in Council Bluffs. The accident happened at around 12:10-p.m.
