UPDATE: 1 dead after two crashes shut down I-380 Friday afternoon

Posted: Updated:

An Illinois woman has died after the motorcycle she was riding on crashed into a patrol car that was directing traffic for another crash Friday afternoon.

Shannan Managan, 44, of Harvey, Ill., was pronounced dead at Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo.

The driver of the motorcycle -- Roy Robinson, 44, of Chicago -- was also taken to Covenant with unknown injuries.

Interstate 380 northbound between exit 55 and exit 62 reopened Friday evening after being closed for four hours due to the two crashes.

According to the Iowa State Patrol, the first crash was reported at 12:45 p.m. Friday and involved an ambulance, a truck and a motorcycle.

Trooper Todd Valentine says a truck driven by Mark Steven Loomis of Hazleton was slowing down for construction zone traffic when it was rear-ended by an ambulance driven by George Keith Doughty of Atalissa.

Valentine said a motorcycle driven by Stephen Francis Yuhase of Chesterfield, Mich., then lost control while trying to avoid the crash.

Doughty and Yuhase were both injured along with Jason Lee Allan of Tiffin, Daisy Nelson of Waterloo, Jodie Dillon Gartner of Iowa City and Victoria Miller of New Baltimore, Mich.

Loomis, who was driving a truck owned by Wheelers Auto Body Supply, was not injured.

Miller was taken to a hospital by Air Care.

The second crash was reported shortly after 2 p.m., about a half-mile south of the first, near mile marker 61 northbound on I-380.

Officials said Robinson and Managan's Harley Davidson motorcycle struck the back of a Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office patrol car directing traffic from the first crash.

According to the report, the patrol car was in "emergency mode" with flashing lights activated when the crash occurred.

KWWL reporter Shelley Russell said the interstate during the crashes was like a parking lot, and people were getting out of their vehicles and walking around.
