Crash in I-380 construction zone ties up morning commute

EVANSDALE (KWWL) -

Slow traffic in an Interstate 380 construction zone lead to a four vehicle crash Thursday morning.

It happened around 7:38 a.m. near mile marker 70. Officials say a car rear ended a pick-up truck as traffic slowed for construction workers. The truck hit another car, which then struck a third car.

The driver of the first car was ticketed for failure to maintain control. Traffic was tied up for more than an hour. No one was hurt.

One person was taken to the hospital for a medical issue following the crash. No word on their condition.

Evansdale police say this is at least the sixth crash so far in the construction area. They recommend drivers watch for slowing traffic and use caution in the area.

Iowa DOT officials recommend travelers use an alternate route until the construction is complete.
