At least one person was transported by lifeflight Monday night after a vehicle reportedly traveling east in the westbound lanes of Iowa Highway 141 caused a head-on collision between Bouton and Woodward near Quinlan Avenue.
The number of persons injured and the extent of their injuries is unknown at this hour. Two Dallas County EMS ambulances along with the air ambulance were on the scene of the mishap that occurred about 6:15 p.m.
The Iowa State Patrol was the supervising agency in the incident. Also responding were the Perry Police Department, Woodward Police Department, Woodward First Responders, Woodward Volunteer Fire Department, Dallas County Sheriff’s office and Dallas County EMS.
One of the vehicles involved, a four-door passenger car, came to rest in the median directly in front of the old Leaming Ranch at 25693 141st St. To the east of the first vehicle, a second vehicle came to rest in the ditch on the south side of the eastbound lanes of Iowa Highway 141.
The collision hampered eastbound traffic on Iowa Highway 141, which was detoured northward toward Bouton on O Avenue while emergency crews worked at the accident scene.
