Three people hurt in three-vehicle crash east of Lisbon

Thursday morning accident shut down Highway 30 for nearly two hours

Three people were taken to area hospitals after a multiple-vehicle accident east of Lisbon Thursday morning, authorities said.

Six departments were dispatched around 10:41 a.m. Thursday to a three-vehicle accident on Highway 30 just east of Lisbon. Officials said Sabrina Cruz, 21, of Cedar Rapids was eastbound on Highway 30 when her car drifted left of center, striking a truck traveling westbound driven by Michael Clark, 42, of Mount Vernon.

The collision caused Cruz’s car to spin into the path of a westbound truck driven by Harold Goldsmith, 73, of Clarence. Authorities said Goldsmith and his only passenger, Patsy Age, 72, also of Clarence, were taken to St. Luke’s Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

Cruz was flown to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for more serious injuries.

Authorities said Clark, Goldsmith and Age were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident, but Cruz was not. 

Highway 30 was blocked for nearly two hours as officials handled the wreck. The accident remains under investigation by the Linn County Sheriff's Office.
