Accident on I-74 Off-Ramp Near Spruce Hills Drive

June 27, 2013

At approximately 9:45 a.m. today, Bettendorf Police and Fire responded to a three vehicle accident, which occurred on the off-ramp from I-74 to Spruce Hills Drive.

A silver Mercury Sable and a blue Hyundai had come from the off-ramp and began to turn west onto Spruce Hills Drive after the light turned green.  The vehicles were side by side in the turn lanes.  A silver Chrysler Town and Country van was eastbound on Spruce Hills Drive when it failed to stop at the red light and struck both vehicles.  The van first struck the Mercury Sable, which was in the closest lane, which then caused the Mercury Sable to have contact with the blue Hyundai.

The female driver of the van was transported to Genesis East along with male driver and female passenger of the Mercury Sable.  The female driver of the Hyundai was treated and released at the scene.  

The accident is under investigation with possible charges pending.
