Police close I-35 in Warren County when bridge hit

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A truck carrying a backhoe crashed into an overpass spanning Interstate 35 in Warren County, causing police to close the northbound lanes of the freeway.

KCCI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/12VMuzg ) that officials closed the lanes just after 6 p.m. Monday after determining the overpass wasn’t safe to drive on or pass beneath. The accident is north of Iowa Highway 92 and Exit 56.

Authorities were diverting traffic around the area. It wasn’t clear when the northbound freeway would reopen.
