snow car accident

Iowa authorities have released footage of a massive 70-car pile up in which one person was killed.

The footage captured on a traffic camera was released by the Iowa Department of Transport. It shows motorists on Iowa’s Interstate 35 battle with rough, snowy driving conditions near Ames. It captures the multi-vehicle crash as it unfolds.

One person was killed and up to 10 injured in the crash. In total, seven people died in crashes across Iowa on Monday, Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Nathan Ludwig told KCCI.

What starts as a single crash barely visible through the snowstorm soon escalates, as cars, trucks and buses collide, despite their best efforts to avoid the growing pile-up.

Some vehicles manage to swerve to avoid the carnage, with some ending up in the surrounding fields. Motorists can be seen fleeing their vehicles to avoid being hit by oncoming vehicles.

Other drivers stuck in the pile up are seen standing outside their cars, trying to alert approaching vehicles. A section of the I-35 was closed following the incident.

    Not a single vehicle or Semi traveling the opposite direction bothered to blink there headlights warning the oncoming traffic of the pending danger just ahead? Standard protocol.

    People in Iowa say they are going to sue because you told me about something. So nobody told anyone on the CB radio about the accident

      your an idiot truck driver—shut the hell up you moron

  • DK

    What is not mentioned is that all of these drivers who could not stop did not know the appropriate stopping distance in ice and snow to stop therefore were each and every one of them entirely to blame for crashing into stationary traffic by not keeping their appropriate distance for ICE and slowing down to less than 30 mph. As they also lost visibility, I see some commentators are going on about other people taking responsibility for you by flashing their headlights, bunkum. Learn to drive safely.
