A semi driver was injured when his rig struck a plow Monday evening in Bremer County.

The Iowa State Patrol Says the collision occurred shortly after 5 p.m. along Highway 3 east of Readlyn. 70-year-old Richard Kane of Denver was driving a Freightliner semi eastbound when his vehicle was hit by a chisel plow being towed westbound by a Ford F-250 pickup driven by 74-year-old John Even of Readlyn. The plow had drifted across the center line into the path of Kane’s semi.

Kane was injured and airlifted by MercyOne AirCare to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
