The Iowa State Patrol says four people from Des Moines were injured after the vehicle they were in crashed and rolled over Friday night in Harrison County. Officials say a 2006 Toyota corolla driven by 24-year old Chappo Kabadom, of Des Moines, was traveling north on Interstate 29 about two-miles south of the Missouri Valley exit, when the car went out of control and hit a bridge before sliding sideways off the north shoulder of the road and rolling over. One person was ejected during the crash, which happened at around 11:55-p.m..

Kabadom, along with his passengers : 16-year old Banana J. Masso, 24-year old Assanai Worare, and 22-year old Andiriya Adum, all of Des Moines, were transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, with the 16-year old being flown to the facility by helicopter. Their injuries were described as non-life threatening. The accident remains under investigation, but was being complicated by a language barrier.
