Snowstorm causes several accidents on I-74
An inch of snow flurries that fell Sunday evening caused numerous crashes to occur on I-74 in Iowa.
A nine car pile-up was the largest of the collisions and took place near the Mississippi River bridge. Police that responded to the scene estimate that 10 people suffered injuries in the accidents. Head, back, and neck injuries were reported, but the severity of those injuries were unclear.
Numerous other car accidents happened all over the lanes of Interstate 74. Police were responding to different collision sites until around 9:30 p.m., when the calls began to slow in number. Coincidentally, that is when the snowstorm stopped as well. Police are urging Iowa drivers to proceed with caution in the coming days due to winter weather advisories in different areas.
