An accident on I-35 in Ankeny Tuesday morning caused a traffic slowdown for travelers.

It happened around 8:00 a.m. when a van collided with a Waste Management truck between the Corporate Woods Drive and Oralabor exits on southbound I-35.

Traffic was backed up all the way past 1st Street and two southbound lanes were closed for about half an hour while crews cleaned up the scene.

There’s no word on whether anyone was injured in the crash.
