Posted: Updated:

Two children and an adult were killed and eight other people were injured in a crash Saturday morning on Interstate Highway 80 in west-central Iowa, according to the Iowa State Patrol. 

The Iowa State Patrol says just after 9 a.m. a semi-truck  crossed the median and collided with an eastbound mini-van traveling in the right lane.  The semi then jackknifed and came to rest in a ditch. The third vehicle collided with the trailer.

41- year-old Rodney Sanborn of Nebraska, 11-year-old Gavin Steckler and 14-year-old Jameson Steckler, both of Audubon, Iowa all died from the crash. 

The crash is under investigation at this time.

The Iowa DOT says the multiple vehicle crash closed a portion of Interstate 80 in Western Iowa.  The portion of I-80 has since been reopened.

The Iowa DOT urges caution on slick roads and said there had been several other collisions in the area.
