DES MOINES, Iowa - Neighbors say icy roads likely led to this head-on crash Saturday night at MLK at 18th in Des Moines.  

Witnesses say the cars didn't appear to have been speeding.  Two people were freed from the wreckage and taken to the hospital.  

Des Moines Police Sergeant Paul Parizek confirms to WHO Radio News that it appears that slick roads were a contributing factor in the crash.  He says three people were hurt, one in the pickup and two people in the car.  All are non-life threatening injuries.
