An Iowa State Patrol trooper suffered minor injuries yesterday when a semi-truck collided with his patrol car on the entrance ramp of U.S. 20 and Interstate 35.
The trooper was assisting another officer at the scene of a car accident when the collision occurred. The trooper and a driver involved in the first crash were inside the cruiser and taken to a hospital in Webster City with non life-threatening injuries.
High winds and heavy slush on the roads resulted in poor visibility, but it has not been determined whether those factors contributed significantly to the accident. Authorities are still investigating the crash.

A 20-year-old woman who was driving south on I-380 on Wednesday night in Johnson County lost control of her car when she tried to exit onto the I-80 eastbound ramp.
The woman’s 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt struck a guardrail on the exit ramp, which forced the car back into oncoming traffic. There it collided with a semi-truck driven by a 61-year-old man. The woman was taken by ambulance to the University of Iowa hospital for her injuries.
The driver of the semi-truck was not injured in the crash.
