    Sorry I was out sightseeing all day with my wife,& never got on the message board.

    I will search the net in this location for this crash,to see what I can find an on-line report.
    However some crash reports stay on-line for months, where others are very short lived,especially well known LTL companies.

    I am going to church shortly,I will check in when I get back,& let you know what I found.
    Or see if any of you posted anything.

    If the mile marker is correct, that would be somewhere between Des Moines, south toward rt. 92 and Osceola, Ia

    When I got home I searched for crash reports all along I-35 in Iowa in the last week.
    The only ones I found was a Semi hauling grain that hit a Semi flatbed & rolled over near Des Moines.
    As well as a car that hit a Semi Tanker head-on near Osceola.
    But could not find anything regarding this crash.

    I figure YRC was able to keep this report off-line, due to the very poor image of seeing their equipment in a crash.
    I have find this to be the case with a lot of the more well know trucking companies,mainly LTL.
    Over the many years I've been posting commercial vehicle crashes.

    Thanks for trying Apostolic. I tried and searched all the Des Moines papers also. Sometimes there just isn't any report sent to the Media. I see a lot of Truck accidents in the Greater Hsbg., Pa. area that don't make it to the papers either.
