Winter conditions causing problems on Siouxland roads

Local News

Icy roads are a winter wakeup call as it produced the first weather-related school closings of the season and dangerous driving conditions.

Two semis and four other vehicles were caught up in a series of accidents over a two-mile span on Highway 20.

One of the semis rolled and ended up in pieces in the median. 

Deputies said there are no injuries.

Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office, Sioux City PD and Lawton Fire are working to clean up that accident.

Westbound traffic should be back to normal later Wednesday night. 

Cleanup of the semi will reportedly happen Thursday during hopeful clear weather.

This accident was just one of many throughout Siouxland Wednesday.

There are dangerous roads in the Sioux City metro as well.

A truck was heading toward Interstate 29 south off of Highway 75 when the driver lost control and rolled down the embankment.

The driver said he was only driving around 30 miles per hour at the time. He was not injured in the crash.

Sioux City Police and Fire Rescue assisted with the crash.


Slippery conditions are responsible for a pair of semi rollovers on Interstate 29.

Northbound traffic came to a standstill around 9:30 a.m. near Beresford when a semi ended up on its side.

An afternoon incident further north near Canton also slowed traffic on I-29.

Siouxland state troopers remind drivers to always be alert for rapidly changing driving conditions.
