One person was injured in an accident Monday in Washington County. Law enforcement officers have not identified which driver was hurt in the two vehicle accident that occurred Monday morning on Hwy 218. Kayla Jacobs of Ft. Madison was driving north on 218 when she lost control of her vehicle on the snowy roadway. The vehicle fish tailed and slid across both northbound lanes, crossed the median and entered the southbound lanes where it struck a car driven by Alexandra Bruns of Cedar Rapids. There was major damage to both vehicles. Jacobs was cited for failure to maintain control. It was snowing at the time of the accident and the road was partially covered.
