A man and woman from Adel were injured in a crash Saturday between their car and a van, in Dallas County. The Iowa State Patrol reports 75-year old Beverly Havlik and a passenger in her car, 83-year old Walter Havlik, who were both wearing their seat belts, were transported to Methodist Hospital in Des Moines. Walter Havlik was flown by helicopter to the facility, while his wife was transported by ambulance.
Officials say a 2001 Chevy Cavalier driven by Beverly Havlik and a 2003 Chrysler Town and Country van driven by 38-year old Jennifer R. Long, of Van Meter, were both traveling southbound on R Avenue north of 300th Street (east of Adel) at around 8:35-a.m., Saturday, when Havlik attempted to make a left turn onto 300th Street, and was hit by the van as it was in the northbound lane while attempting to pass.
Officials say Long was not injured in the crash.
