Blizzard in Iowa Causes 25+ Vehicle Crash
Dec 20, 2012
With boys and girls around the area praying for a white Christmas, a tragic wreck in Iowa is a strong reminder to be safe when the white stuff comes our way.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The first widespread snowstorm of the season crawled across the Midwest on Thursday, with whiteout conditions stranding holiday travelers and sending drivers sliding over slick roads – including into a fatal 25-vehicle pileup in Iowa.
The storm, which dumped a foot of snow in parts of Iowa and Wisconsin, was part of a system that began in the Rockies earlier in the week before trekking into the Midwest. It was expected to move across the Great Lakes overnight before moving into Canada.
