DES MOINES, Iowa  —  Instead of the car lot, several vehicles are likely headed to the junkyard.

On Monday afternoon, a semi transporting multiple vehicles slammed into a railroad bridge, causing damage to the cars on top. A white Ford F-150 was pushed back into several other cars on the trailer.

No one was injured in the crash.

The truck clipped the top of the bridge just below the sign warning drivers of low clearance.

VAN METER, Iowa  —  The Iowa DNR recently conducted a controlled burn at Badger Creek State Recreation Area.

On April 12th, 120 acres were intentionally burned in order to remove trees from prairie areas, destroy dead grass and leaves that collect over the winter, and help with new growth during spring.

Just two weeks after the fire, it appears to be working. New green plants are already showing up in the area that was burned.
