Iowa City (KWWL) -- A crash that backed up traffic on Interstate 80 in Iowa City Thursday night may have been a suicide attempt, according to the Iowa State Patrol.

Investigators say a 24 year-old Cedar Rapids man told his family he was going to kill himself. A short time later, police say he drove his car into the back of a semi at the Dubuque Street exit of Interstate 80. The man was taken to the hospital but is expected to be ok. No word on any charges.
