A driver has been cited for causing a crash Wednesday morning on Interstate 80 involving two semitrailers, police said.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office responded to the crash at 7:55 a.m. in the westbound lanes at the 289 mile marker.

One semitrailer was hauling milk and the other was hauling toys, police said. No injuries were reported in the crash.

A semitrailer driven by 48-year-old Kim Tomaszewski of Kearns, Utah, struck a tractor-trailer that was parked on the shoulder, police said. She was cited for improper lane usage.

The driver of the parked semitrailer, 34-year-old Aaron B. Given of Branchland, W.V., had stopped to check on a possible wheel problem and was awaiting a break in the traffic flow when the crash occurred, police said.  

Due to the extent of the crash damage and debris, the interstate was reduced to one lane of traffic for about an hour-and-a-half.

Also responding to the crash were the Walcott Police Department, Walcott Fire Department, Medic Ambulance and the Iowa Department of Transportation.


UPDATE at 9:44 A.M.: The accident has been cleared and all lanes have reopened.

From the Iowa Department of Transportation at 8:14 a.m.: The right westbound lane of Interstate 80, between county road Y40 and Interstate 280 near Davenport, is blocked because of an accident involving a semi trailer.
