Today at about 2:25 pm came across this accident on my home. The semi tipped onto its side not sure how this happened, no other cars were involved, and I watched the driver walk away from the truck. This is interstate 80 at the bottom of the Iowa City exit. Happy to see the driver was okay and very happy to see everyone trying to help out until the police and medics arrived.

I watched it happen in my rear view mirror. There were 2 vehicles by the side of the ramp - must have tried to avoid them? If I had left home 15 seconds later I would have been in the middle of it. They had it cleaned up in 1.5hrs. Scary to witness!
