On March 3, just after midnight, a box truck driven by Michael Miller of Cedar Rapids rear-ended a tractor trailer driven by a South Dakota man. The tractor trailer was traveling eastbound on I80 through Poweshiek County at a slow rate of speed due to the road conditions. The emergency lights were turned on and the tractor trailer was in the right hand lane when 20-year-old Miller hit it from behind. Miller died from his injures. The tractor trailer driver was not injured in the accident.
