(Emmetsburg)-- Two people were injured Monday in a two-vehicle collision in Palo Alto county. Authorities say Barbara Croxdale of Ames was northbound on a county road when she suffered a medical condition that caused her to collide with the rear of a vehicle driven by Lauren Johnson of Mason City who was attempting to turn into a driveway. The impact forced Johnson's vehicle into the east ditch where it rolled once, coming to rest on its back wheels. Croxdale's vehicle crossed the roadway and went into the west ditch. 

Johnson was treated on the scene for minor injuries; Croxdale was taken by ambulance to the Palo Alto County Hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.

A 2014 Ford Fusion driven by Croxdale and a 2012 GMC Savana driven by Johnson were both totaled.

The Palo Alto County Sheriff's office was assisted by the Emmet County Sheriff's Office and the Palo Alto County Ambulance Service.
