The Iowa State Patrol has identified the man who died in a one-car crash Friday morning along Interstate 80 east of Council Bluffs.
Duane Allen Oliver, 56, of Glenwood, Iowa, died at about 6 a.m. Authorities said he was driving east on I-80 near Underwood when he lost control and struck a car that had become stuck on a median the day before.
Ice appeared to be a factor in the crash.
The Iowa Department of Transportation said Friday morning that road conditions were not likely to significantly improve until later in the day. On Thursday, road conditions were so bad in Iowa that officials appealed to surrounding states for their help in keeping truckers and other drivers of high-profile or unsteady vehicles out of the state.
