Black ice may have been the cause for three accidents that occurred on Interstate 80, one involving a state patrol car. The accidents caused the traffic to build up on the highway.
According to Iowa State officials, the accidents occurred near West Branch. A state patrol officer’s car was hit while he was responding to another minor collision.
Before this collision, another accident occurred involving two vehicles in the left lane of the road and it caused the roadway to be blocked for some time. Black ice was spotted in the area and officials are urging drivers to be cautious while on the road. There were no major injuries in any of the accidents.
