Council Bluffs police say a crash on Interstate 80 on Thursday could have been much worse had it not been for the guard wires that separate east- and westbound traffic. Police Sergeant Patrick Norris says a woman driving an S.U.V. suffered a diabetic reaction, lost control of her vehicle and hit the dividing wires in the median.
Norris says, “If they weren’t here, she would’ve crossed over traffic and certainly it would’ve been a much more serious accident than it was.” The woman was airlifted to the hospital. There’s no word on her name or condition.
