Sunday afternoon the Benton County Sheriff's Department, Vinton Fire Department and the North Benton Ambulance all responded to a two-vehicle accident. The accident occured at the intersection of Highway 218 and 64th St., known locally as the Shellsburg corner. 

There were two cars involved in the accident with one car coming to rest in a cornfield on the northwest side of the intersection. It appears that the car was airborne over the ditch and up into the field. The other car came to rest facing north in the southbound lane of the highway. 

It is unclear what happened as the investigation was ongoing. It didn't appear that there were injuries requiring urgent care at the time of the accident.
