Wrong-Way I-35 Head-On Collision in IowaSteveL
It’s been a while since I last covered an interstate highway wrong-way collision. Not that there aren’t many, there are. On the old website and when I wrote to InjuryBoard.com I covered over 1,000 wrong-way collisions from all over the country. So, what happened in southern Iowa?
Now we have another one in Iowa.
Larry Wayne Ross, 82 was driving a 2008 Chevy Impala heading southbound in the northbound lanes when he ran head-on into a 2015 Peterbilt semi-tractor being driven by Alsson Battin or Rock Island, Illinois.
When you first become aware of interstate highway wrong-way collisions they seem to be an oddity. But really, they happen quite frequently. Like I said, I’ve covered over a thousand of them in the United States.
Poor Mr. Ross, according to the ISP report, died in the crash. Mr. Battin was also injured and was also transported to a local hospital to be checked.
