A crash in central Iowa early this morning sent six people to hospitals with potentially life-threatening injuries. Marshalltown police responded just before 2 A.M. to investigate the crash on the city’s northeast side.
A sport utility vehicle carrying six passengers had come to rest in Linn Creek. Police Chief Michael Tupper says it’s not clear why the vehicle left the street and then flipped over the embankment of Linn Creek. All six passengers were taken to the Marshalltown hospital, with an infant and an adult male transported by Life Flight Air Ambulance to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.
Condition reports are not available at this time.
