Drivers in Iowa understand that weather conditions often contribute to dangerous road conditions. Whether it is windy, snowing, hailing or raining, drivers should adjust their driving for inclement weather. In most cases, this means turning on their headlights, reducing speeds and double-checking their mirrors and blind spots. Failure to adjust during dangerous road conditions could result in a serious or even fatal accident.
Iowa State Patrol recently responded to a car accident that involved a pickup truck and a car. According to reports, the fatal crash occurred on interstate 80 in the afternoon. The driver of the car was traveling westbound on the interstate when they lost control of their vehicle. This caused them to strike the center median and reenter traffic.
