Eastern Iowans heading to volunteer have vehicle troubles
DES MOINES (KWWL) -
A group of Eastern Iowans headed to Joplin, Missouri to deliver donated supplies has hit a couple of snags along the way.
The group had a flat tire on the trailer in Des Moines, but got assistance from a Highway Helper who had it fixed in 10 minutes.
Then, south of Des Moines, the trailer started having problems and they ended up in the median. Everyone was ok, but a couple of tires were flattened the hitch was bent. They tell us they will load everything into a U-Haul and continue on their way.
They will leave the trailer and the van behind, and take the U-Haul and pick-up down to Joplin.
They expect to be in Joplin Wednesday night and will send pictures when they get a chance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
