Hazardous Road Conditions Contribute To 70-Vehicle Pileup In Iowa

 Tuesday, February 6, 2018


A massive, deadly pileup involving dozens of cars on a snow-covered freeway has killed one person and sent at least five others to the hospital in critical condition, authorities said Monday. Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Nathan Ludwig told KCCI that seven people died on Iowa roads Monday. Altogether, troopers responded to 185 accidents across the state, he said. A tour bus transporting cast and crew of "Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up the Night" was involved in a crash on Interstate 80, presumably due to hazardous conditions after snow fell over much of the state.
