A Dallas County, Iowa car and truck wreck on I-80 was caused when a semi-truck crashed into the rear of a Chevy Impala with a family from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The impact was so great that it pushed the Impala into a Ford van. A young child with the Minnesota family died in the crash. The child-safety seat did not save the child’s life.

If we can help the family with any legal advice our firm is a phone call away. We wish them well during this very difficult time.
