Iowa residents are aware that various types of vehicles fill the major and minor roadways of the state. Some major roads, such as Interstate 35, experience high levels of traffic at certain hours of the day, making them more prone to accidents. Moreover, this interstate is frequently used by large vehicles such as semi-trucks. While these massive trucks could travel safely on these roads, unfortunately a truck crash could ensue due to driver negligence or dangerous conditions on the roadway.
A fatal crash recently occurred in Cerro Gordo County, Iowa, involving a pickup truck and a semi-truck. According to preliminary reports, the incident occurred on Interstate 35 near the Clear Lake exit when a semi-truck rear-ended the pickup truck. Officer indicated that the 67-year-old woman driving the pickup truck was stalled in a lane of the interstate. Shortly after, the stalled vehicle was struck from behind by the semi-truck.
