One person was injured during a single-vehicle accident Tuesday night about 3.5-miles east of Stuart, on Interstate 80 in Adair County. According to the Iowa State Patrol, a 2006 Chevy Colorado pickup driven by 41-year old Heather Ann Roberts, of Council Bluffs, was traveling west on I-80 at around 10:30-p.m., when the vehicle went out of control. The pickup crossed the median and was hit broadside in the passenger side by a 2006 Volvo semi, driven by 49-year old Michael P. Cole, of Oswego, IL. Both vehicles then came to rest in the east ditch off of eastbound I-80. Roberts was transported by Stuart Rescue to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. A report on her condition is not available. The driver of the semi was not injured.
