Des Moines truck driver killed in I-80 crash

A Des Moines truck driver was killed in a wreck on I-80, near Stuart in  Adair County.  

The Iowa State Patrol says Michael Byers was driving a semi westbound on I-80, yesterday (Wednesday) morning, at 6:45, when the truck left the road, went into a ditch,  and rolled.  

Byers was thrown from the truck.   He was flown to Iowa Methodist Medical  Center, where he was pronounced dead.   

The truck was pulling a tanker loaded with hazardous materials, so HAZMAT crews were called in to unload the truck.
