Weather conditions lead semi to jackknife on highway

Posted: Updated:
JONES COUNTY (KWWL) -

Brutal conditions including winds gusting up to 40 mph in the area lead a semi to jackknife on Hwy 151. 

It happened this morning just north of Anamosa near 180th Avenue. 

The wind was coupled with ice and rain making for slick roads. 

Andrew Lindley, Operator with Reds Towing says it's not the first time there has been a weather-related accident on the corner. 

"It gets really slick around this corner, the wind, it gets icy. And this is probably, since I've been with the company for 5 years, this is probably my 8th accident right here on this corner," he says. 

The scene closed off the outside lane of Hwy 151 northbound for several hours. 

The driver of the semi was not hurt.
