An early morning accident in Evansdale injured two Waterloo residents.
Just before 6:30 A.M. today (3/7/17) Black Hawk County Sheriff Deputies were called to a single motor vehicle accident on I-380 at mile marker 69.

The driver, as well as the passenger, Antonio Harris, 27, also from Waterloo, were transported to Covenant Medical Center by Waterloo Fire Rescue. Their conditions have not been released.
The accident remains under investigation.
