One woman was injured after a collision with another vehicle as she was crossing Williams Boulevard and its exit with Highway 30.

According to a Linn County Media Release, at approximately 1:45 p.m. Linn County Deputies received a report of a two-vehicle accident in the area of Williams Blvd. and Highway 30.

Upon arriving, officers determined that a vehicle driven by Leah Bolton, 39, of Cedar Rapids “had pulled into oncoming traffic” as she attempted to go from the Highway 30 west bound ramp to go south onto Williams Blvd. According to the release, Madalyn Baughan, 17, of Cedar Rapids had been heading north on Williams Blvd. at this time and was across Highway 30 when she struck Bolton’s vehicle.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident.

Bolton was transported to the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City for what were believed to be non-life threatening injuries. Baughan refused treatment and was transported from the scene when her mother arrived, according to the release.

Investigation into the incident continues and charges are pending.

Linn County Deputies were assisted in their response by the Fairfax Fire Department and Area Ambulance Service.
