BOONE, Iowa—Thanksgiving travelers ran into a few problems Wednesday, when light rain turned to freezing rain, causing multiple accidents. Iowa State Patrolman Doug Cutts told KWBG that bridges iced over quickly late Wednesday morning. He said there was a serious accident on IA Highway 17 on the Des Moines River Bridge south of Madrid. The road was closed for several hours while emergency responders cleaned up the site. Cutts says motorists should remain cautious through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
