Sheriff’s officials in Harrison County say two people were injured during a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon, about two-miles east of Missouri Valley. Authorities say a 2011 Ford Fusion was traveling east on Highway 30 at around 2-p.m, Wednesday, when the car crossed the center line of the road and hit a 1991 Honda. The driver of the Honda, 54-year old Jennette McGraw, of Magnolia, suffered life threatening injuries, and was transported by LifeNet helicopter to the trauma center at Creighton University Hospital, in Omaha.

The driver of the Ford Fusion, 31-year old Kerri Collier, of Woodbine, was transported by ambulance to Alegent Hospital in Missouri Valley. The crash resulted in Highway 30 being closed for about 2-hours, while an investigation was conducted and the vehicle removed.

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Iowa State Patrol, Missouri Valley Police Department, and Missouri Valley and Logan Rescue squads.
