Semi sideswipes trooper's car in Cedar County Wednesday morning
Icy conditions made for dangerous travel in eastern Iowa Wednesday morning.
Around 8 a.m., a trooper with Iowa State Patrol was already at the scene of a five-car crash on I-80 in Cedar County near the Highway 6 exit. That's when a semi lost control on the ice-covered roadway and sideswiped the squad car.
The trooper was in the vehicle but is okay.
The DOT did not advise anyone to travel on a 75 mile stretch of the interstate Wednesday morning in Cedar, Johnson and Iowa Counties.
