Local News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — Traffic on a busy stretch of Sioux City highway slowed to a crawl Tuesday afternoon after a semi-tanker was forced off the road and into the median grass.

According to Woodbury County deputies, a pickup pulling a trailer pulled to the shoulder just off westbound Highway 75 near Morningside Ave.

When two semi tractor-trailer rigs running side-by-side approached, the tanker swerved to avoid contact and ended up in the median.

Deputies say the tanker was not damaged and nobody was injured. The accident remains under investigation.
