A semi-trailer hauling coils of steel was passing traffic and hit a car from behind. The semi lost control causing a roll of coiled steel to break through the wall of the trailer and land on another vehicle. The semi then overturned.

The semi, car and a pickup truck were all involved in the accident.

The road was closed for several hours following the crash. Investigators continue to look into what caused it.
