(Shelby) One person was hurt in a two-vehicle accident Tuesday night on Interstate 80 in Pottawattamie County.
The Iowa State Patrol says 36-year-old James Henry of Grand Island, Nebraska was transported by Shelby Rescue to Mrytue Memorial Hospital in Harlan.
Authorities say Henry was eastbound in a 2012 Freightliner and was struck by a trailing 2012 Volvo semi, driven by 24-year-old Travion Wilson, of Goodyear, Arizona. According to the report Wilson lost control when he swerved into the left lane to avoid contact with the Freightliner. His semi jackknifed and struck the trailer being pulled by the Freightliner causing it to jackknife and enter the south ditch.
Travion Wilson was cited for failure to maintain control.
