Southbound Highway 65 bypass reopens after truck, rolled and spilled concrete


POLK COUNTY, Iowa – The southbound lanes of Highway 65 bypass that were closed because of an accident Wednesday morning, are now open again.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says the accident happened at 9:07 a.m. on the Vandalia Bridge when a southbound concrete truck, owned by Manatt’s Inc., made a quick lane change to avoid a car that was merging.

The truck rolled onto its side, blocking one lane of traffic. Concrete spilled from the truck onto the other lane of southbound traffic.

Motorists were diverted onto Vandalia Road while the scene was cleaned up. The southbound lanes were re-opened shortly after 11:00 a.m.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into the accident. No injuries were reported.
