    163 Accident

    Driving home from Oskaloosa yesterday I came up on a fairly severe accident. It looked like at least 7 cars were involved as I was going by it. 2 cars appeared totaled, and the rest were pulled off on a side street. This was about 2 miles west of Pella. Anyone here hear anything about this? Was anyone hurt, or did everyone walk away?

    are you referring to the train wreck that happened at One Arrowhead Drive?

    No, a car accident that looked like it could have been head-on-head and I'm not sure if people were injured or not.

    One car had a bumper sticking out of the driver's door when I drove by.

    Re: 163 Accident

    Hadn't heard about that but that road has some fairly nasty crashes on it. The worst I saw was a couple of years ago when a semi hit a tractor full bore, flipping the semi on it's side and hitting a couple of cars in the process. Come to think of it, it was about in the same location you mentioned.

    There was a fatality about 2 years ago by Otley due to black ice, and I got hit by a pig truck one winter, plus my numerous speeding tickets. Can't say that is my favorite stretch of road.

    It looked like someone was T-boned from what I saw.
