Rain Contributes to 18 Wheeler Accident in Iowa

IOWA, LA (KPLC) - In the third accident today involving an 18-wheeler, this time in Iowa on I-10 Westbound, police believe the rain was to blame.

They say around 12:30 this afternoon, a car hydroplaned into a ditch near exit 43.

An 18-wheeler swerved to miss the car and hit the median wall, and then bounced off that and crashed off the road causing major damage to the cab of the vehicle.

The outside lane on I-10 heading westbound remains closed, which could cause some delays.

No one was reported hurt.
