Two vehicles were involved in a Monday evening collision near the intersection of First Avenue West and West 11th Street North in Newton, resulting in one car being forced onto the lawn of a nearby home.

Newton Fire Chief Jarrod Wellik said the people of both vehicles did not suffer life-threatening injuries and were not transported to the hospital by ambulance for immediate assistance, but they were treated by paramedics at the scene.

The Newton Fire Department and Newton Police Department responded to the crash site a little after 6 p.m., with the latter directing the flow of traffic impeded by a blue Kia Sportage, whose front fender sustained heavy damage.

Likewise, a red Chevrolet HHR was collided near a tree in the front yard of a home on the northwest corner of the intersection, the vehicle of which also took substantial damages. A nearby stop sign appeared to have been run over or knocked off its post as a result of the crash.

Wellik said he did not know which vehicle was responsible for the collision.

Both vehicles’ airbags deployed. Fire department crews poured bags of peat moss on the oil pools scattered across the pavement to absorb the liquid.
