32 people injured in several I-80 accidents in Iowa
At least 32 people in Iowa suffered injuries in a recent string of accidents that involved several vehicles, including a semitrailer truck, a May 9 article of The Des Moines Register reported.
According to reports, on May 8 several vehicular accidents happened in traffic on Interstate Highway 80. A particularly damaging one involved six vehicles. A truck operator who witnessed a series of collisions involving another semi-truck believed that the truck driver who caused the crash failed to step on the brakes. The truck apparently went up in flames and other vehicles, including trucks and a bus, were damaged. The 32 injured people were transported to different hospitals; one of them was airlifted. Despite all of the accidents and injuries, authorities reported that no one was killed.
