Two Injured After SUV, Motorcycle Collide Head On

By Nick Davis, April 20, 2017

A two vehicle accident sent both drivers to the hospital Thursday morning.

First responders were called to the 300 block of Church Street at around 10:45 Thursday.

Ottumwa Police Officers say a Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling southbound on Church Street when a black Cadillac SUV pulled out in front of it from a driveway.

The two vehicles struck nearly head on, throwing the cyclist approximately 25 feet down the road.

The motorcyclist was transported by ambulance to the Ottumwa Regional Health Center with serious injuries. He was conscious while paramedics helped him at the scene.

The driver of the Cadillac was transported via a private vehicle.

Police say that because of the serious nature of the accident, the Iowa State Patrol has stepped in to handle the investigation.

Church Street has been closed because of the accident. Police say the busy thoroughfare should reopen by 2:00 this afternoon.
