Early on the morning of Sept. 17, a personal-injury vehicle crash occurred in the 2000 block of I Street. A vehicle driven by Tyler Joe Fetters, 19, of North Liberty was westbound on I Street and was traveling at a high rate of speed when it collided with a parked vehicle.

Iowa City police responded to the scene of the crash, along with the Iowa City Fire Department and the Johnson County Ambulance Service.

Both Fetters and his passenger were removed from the vehicle by fire personnel, after which they were brought to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics emergency center.
