Semi collision on Interstate 35 in Worth county injures California trucker

Accident scene

RURAL WORTH COUNTY – A blown tire led to the collision of two semi trucks Tuesday night on Interstate 35 in rural Worth county, and a long traffic back-up greeted travelers.

The accident took place Tuesday evening, August 14 at about 4:25 PM, according to the Iowa State Patrol. A 2012 Peterbuilt semi driven by 58-year-old Marvin Hagen of Fresno, California was northbound on Interstate 35 near the 217 mile marker when a steer tire blew out. The semi went into the median and then entered the southbound lanes where it was struck by a 2015 Volvo semi driven by 44-year-old Jacky Paschal of Hinesville, Arkansas. The Peterbuilt flipped over and landed on its side in the southbound ditch.

As a result, Hagen was injured and flown by Mercy Airmed to Mercy Hospital in Mason City with undisclosed injuries.

The Worth county sheriff’s office provided traffic control at the scene as cars and travelers were backs up to the Minnesota border.

The accident remains under investigation.
