The driver passed a semi and then returned to the right lane but didn’t see a truck pulling a trailer and driven by Steve Armstrong of Donnellson. The Armstrong vehicle was slowing down and turning west onto 200th Street. The front of the first vehicle struck the rear of the trailer, going underneath. The accident remains under investigation.
