Weather Causing Traffic ProblemsWritten by Theresa Rose on December 28, 2015
The wintery mix hitting the Midwest today (Monday) is reminding drivers of forgotten winter driving skills. Monday morning New London First Responders and Henry County E.M.S. responded to an accident on Hwy 34 at the Des Moines-Henry line. There was a report of a vehicle in the ditch. Also, Monday morning KILJ received a report of an accident involving a snow plow on Hwy 34 West of Mt. Pleasant at mile marker 230 which would be between Mt. Pleasant and Westwood. And then….just before noon a semi overturned in the westbound lanes of 34 near the Franklin Avenue exit west of Mt. Pleasant.
