One person was in listed extremely critical condition after a semi crashed into a house in the western Iowa town of Minden. Pottawattamie County dispatchers said the semi hit the house at 210 Lincoln Street about 7:15 A.M.
Emergency responders worked to resuscitate the unidentified driver of the truck, who was taken to a hospital in Council Bluffs. Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Dwayne Riche, said the semi was an empty grain-hauler traveling northbound on County Road L-66 from Iowa Highway 83 when it left the road and hit the house.
No one was inside the home at the time. County Sheriff Jeff Danker says early indications are that the driver of the semi suffered from a medical condition, possibly a heart attack, prior to the crash.
