Icy road blamed for morning accident in Waterloo

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- An icy patch of road is being blamed for an accident in Waterloo this morning.

The driver of a Ford Ranger was southbound on Washington Street around 8:15 Wednesday morning when he hit a patch of ice at the intersection with Ohio Street.  The driver says he lost control of the truck, fishtailed a couple of times and ended up hitting a post protecting a fire hydrant and ended up in a parking lot.

The Iowa Department of Transportation came out and brined and salted the area to clear the ice.

An employee with the City of Waterloo was looking at a drain hose connected to a nearby business as the source of the water that eventually froze.
