As he was slowing, near mile marker 288, his semi was struck from the rear by a semi driven by 33-year-old Thomas Leeds. Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Matt Stammeyer said Leed’s semi “drove the trailer up through the cab,” of Layton’s truck, injuring the driver.

Leeds was not injured in the accident, Stammeyer said, but the accident left him “shaken.”
