Car Accident Snarls Lunchtime Traffic

By Ellis Codjoe, March 17, 2017

A car accident at Albia Road and Ferry Street cause slow traffic and detours for many during the lunch hour Friday.

The crash was reported at around 11:45. An Orange pickup was traveling south on the Wapello Street Extension and struck a silver SUV in the intersection. It’s unclear at this time what exactly led to the crash or who police consider to be at fault.

No injuries were reported.

The crash forced police to detour traffic around the accident.

Officials quickly cleared the scene and reopened traffic within about half an hour.

The intersection will be replaced this summer with a roundabout which officials hope will decrease accidents and time spent waiting at the intersection.
