One person died and another was injured in a two-vehicle crash Monday morning in Linn County near Central City and Alburnett.
An unidentified male driver was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Linn County Sheriff’s Office. His identity is being withheld pending notification of the family.
The sheriff’s office said Eric Caryl, 42, of Coggon, was driving south on Alburnett Road when he “failed to stop at the stop sign” at Alburnett and Central City roads and crashed his vehicle into another that was headed east on Central City Road and driven by the male occupant.
A picture of the scene posted on the Linn County Sheriff’s Office’s Twitter page shows the two vehicles left the roadway and each rolled at least once before coming rest upside down in the ditch along the road.
The picture also shows what appears to be a trailer on its side, though the sheriff’s office has not said whether one of the vehicles involved was pulling a trailer.
Caryl was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids with injuries that appeared to be not life-threatening.
The incident is under investigation, the sheriff’s office said.
