A car accident involving a patrol car Saturday was caused by heavy fog and hail, according to news reports.
The extreme weather conditions contributed to the pileup on U.S. Highway 221 South, just north of Waterloo, according to news reports. The incident occurred around 6:22 p.m. Saturday when the driver of a patrol car was driving on Highway 221. Traffic suddenly stopped because the heavy fog and hail. The trooper the stopped and put on his blue lights to see if there was an accident.
Shortly after stopping, two vehicles on the highway ran into the patrol car.
Luckily, no one was injured in the pile-up accident. Troopers said no charges will be filed due to extreme driving conditions.
