AMES, Iowa – Feb. 27, 2013 – The Iowa
Department of Transportation is reporting that westbound Interstate 80 in
Jasper County, near Kellogg (milepost 178), is currently completely blocked due
to a crash involving multiple semi-tractor trailer units.
One vehicle is laid over on its side
blocking all lanes of travel, so this incident will take some time to clear and
reopen the highway. There is presently no detour in place,
so avoid the area if possible or expect delays.
