DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Snow continues to fall on the lower half of Iowa, snarling traffic as the snow blankets roads.

The southbound lanes of Interstate 35 near Decatur City remained blocked midmorning Saturday after a semitrailer jackknifed and tipped over amid the winter storm around 2:30 a.m. The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that a passenger bus then hit the overturned semi, leading to minor injuries for one bus passenger. Seven passengers were on the bus at the time of the crash.

Some reports show 10 inches of snow had fallen spots in the southwestern corner of Iowa, and the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for a large section of the state near the Missouri border until 6 p.m. Saturday.
