One person was killed, another injured, during a multiple vehicle collision on Interstate 29 in western Iowa’s Harrison County at midday Tuesday. The Iowa State Patrol says for unknown, non-weather related reasons, while southbound I-29 traffic was at a standstill near the Missouri Valley exit, five semi-tractor trailers collided.
The driver of a 2008 Volvo semi was killed. Their name has not yet been released. Another of the drivers, 62-year old Charles Merle Sundt, of Garretson, South Dakota, was injured and taken to the Missouri Valley Hospital. The other drivers, including a man from Louisville, Kentucky, were not hurt.
The accident happened around 11:45 A.M.
