Charges have been filed against the motorist who forced the closure of an interstate in central Iowa Tuesday. The four-vehicle crash shut down Interstate 35 near West Des Moines for nearly 9 hours. Police say they’ve charged the semi driver from California who caused the accident with failure to maintain control.
The semi crashed through construction barriers, overturned, and spilled diesel fuel across the interstate. Another semi and two other vehicles were impacted and three people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
