IOWA—At least three people have died in weather-related crashes in Iowa as freezing rain and drizzle leaves roads with a light glaze. The Iowa State Patrol says there have been 23 accidents during the day Wednesday. One person was killed in a crash in Polk County. Another fatal crash happened in Cerro Gordo County and the patrol says troopers were responding to a third deadly crash in northern Iowa. At least 40 accidents were reported in the city of Des Moines and Polk County after a band of sleet and freezing drizzle moved across the area. The Iowa Department of Transportation says many northern Iowa roads are covered with ice. Travel isn’t advised on I-35 north from U.S. Highway 20 to the Minnesota border.
