An almost 20-vehicle pileup consisting of cars, sport utility vehicles, and semi-trucks gave rise to a huge chain-reaction crash on the westbound lanes of Interstate 80 between Des Moines and Altoona on the Monday afternoon of January 5, KCCI News reported.
Witness Nibiyou Milkias was on the road on his way back to Iowa State University when one vehicle after another started smashing against each other.
A barrage of ambulances, patrol cars, fire trucks, and tow trucks responded to the scene of the accident to rescue the victims of the incident and to sort out through the debris.
A few people were hospitalized for the treatment of their non-life-threatening injuries, which was perhaps surprising due to the vast amount of wrecked cars on I-80 for miles northeast of Des Moines.
