Three people were injured during a crash late Wednesday morning, on Highway 34, in Union County. The Iowa State Patrol says 44-year old Brian Truax and 67-year old Carol Truax, both of Colliers, West Virginia, and, 67-year old JoAnne Kohn, of Glenwood, were injured during the crash, which happened just west of Creston.

Brian Truax and JoAnne Kohn were transported by ambulance to the hospital in Creston, while Carol Truax was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.

The Patrol says a 2008 Chevy H-H-R, driven by Brian Truax, was traveling west on the highway, when the vehicle crossed the center line of the road and hit a Chrysler 300 driven by JoAnne Kohn, head-on. The accident happened at around 11:53-a.m.
