Iowa woman injured in bicycle v squad crash in Cass County


An Iowa woman was injured when she was hit by a squad car on her bicycle Thursday afternoon.

The state patrol says a Cass County deputy was approaching an intersection of the Heartland Bike Trail in Shingobee Township when two bicyclists reportedly failed to yield.

All parties tried to stop in time, but one was struck by the squad car in the middle of the lane.

Sixty-three-year-old Barbara Gartner of Iowa City was transported by ambulance and air care for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The deputy was not injured.
