A head-on collision on Highway 30 in the Ames area has prompted a shut-down of the westbound lanes.
Authorities are diverting traffic off Highway 30 at the University Street exit that takes drivers toward the Cyclone stadium. The detour winds through Ames and drivers reenter Highway 30 on the west side of Ames, at the South Dakota Street exchange. Commander Mike Brennan of the Ames Police Department says authorities are not sure how long this detour may last.
Eastbound traffic on Highway 30 through the Ames area is still moving.
