(Undated) -- Dozens of cars are scattered on the sides and in the median of I-80 between Des Moines and the Quad Cities on Christmas Day. There are cars, SUVs, pick-up trucks, and numerous jackknifed semis.
In some areas, multiple vehicles are off the road in the same spot.
There are also still cars, trucks, and semis off the road on I-35 from Des Moines north to the Minnesota border. It’s likely towing services will wait until the holiday is over to pull the stranded vehicles out. The Iowa State Patrol says they've assisted more than 900 drivers since Wednesday.
Road conditions continue to improve after a winter storm moved across the Midwest this week. Updates on roadways across the state are available at Iowa 511 Travel Information.
