Authorities are investigating a two-vehicle accident near New Hartford that injured both drivers Tuesday morning (May 22, 2018).
Grundy County sheriff's officials said Andrew Matson, 29, of Parkersburg, suffered multiple injuries in the crash. He was sent to a Waterloo hospital for treatment after being extricated from his pick-up truck after the collision.
The other driver was identified as Dennis Miller, 57, of Janesville. He received minor injuries and went to a local doctor for treatment, authorities said.
The accident happened around 7:40 AM on the Iowa Highway 57 (110th St.) curve just east of Grundy County Road T-55 (U Ave.), about two miles south of New Hartford.

The vehicles collided in the eastbound lane of Iowa 57.
