One hurt in single-car crash

An Afton 16-year-old was airlifted to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines with serious injuries after a single-car crash at about 4:45 p.m. Wednesday at Creamery Road and 165th Street.

According to the Iowa State Patrol, Tyler Kiss was driving a 2011 Kia Soul northbound on Creamery Road and lost control and struck a bridge guard rail. The car then ramped over a small creek and collided with the embankment causing the car to roll multiple times. Kiss was ejected from the vehicle. Kiss was not wearing a seatbelt.
