Snow drifts are wreaking quite a bit of havoc on Iowa roads.

We spotted A truck losing control on 65-69 near Indianola, on a curve where two other vehicles had already wound up in the ditch.  The drivers say drifts like these make driving treacherous.

“I slowed down but it wasn’t…I should have been going a little bit slower to begin with.” Gary Merifield admitted after losing control of his truck, “I drive this road every day.  I should have known the road curve might have been a little snow covered.”

No one was hurt, but several cars were damaged.
