Names of those killed are not being disclosed until relatives are notified. What we know is the driver of a semi-truck on I-80 in Scott County, Iowa drove into a construction zone and rear ended a series of cars stopped in the construction zone.
The 2009 Kenworth Semi-truck was driven by 34 year-old Anthony Johnson of Arlington, Texas. It appears as though the driver of a Chevrolet Corvette and a van driver were both killed and perhaps a third person was injured.
