DAVENPORT, Iowa-- Police confirm a crash happened Friday, July 12, just after 1 a.m., near the intersection of West Kimberly Road and Fairmount Street, near the Walmart.
Our photographer on scene said at least one car was towed away, and that area was blocked off by police for several hours. Police say a southbound Hyundai Sonata crossed the center line and struck a northbound Toyota Camry head on. Two adults in the Sonata and one adult in the Camry were taken to the hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Prior to the crash, police say the Sonata was driving at a high rate of speed by a state trooper who attempted to stop it. The driver failed to stop, resulting in the crash.
Later Friday morning, Riverdale first responders went to Valley Drive and State Street, near Arconic, after reports of an accident there.
It happened around 3:30 a.m. Friday. Our crews spotted a car tipped on its side. One person was transferred to Iowa City for treatment.
The two crashes were not related, according to the Scott County Sheriff's Department.
