Three people were injured in a two-vehicle accident in Butler County Wednesday night (March 30, 2016).
According to the Iowa State Patrol, both drivers -- Elizabeth Henninger, 25, of Plainfield and Tasha Swanton, 33, of Clarksville -- were hurt in the crash, along with a passenger in Swanton's vehicle -- Pamela Swanton, 51, also of Clarksville. The three women were all taken to a hospital in nearby Waverly to be treated for their injuries.
The crash occurred just after 11 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Iowa Highway 3 and Butler County Road T-63 (N. Public Road) in Shell Rock.
