(West Branch, IA) -- On Christmas Day, just one day after Blizzard Warnings were dropped, a trooper pulled a driver he says was going 117 miles an hour on I-80 near West Branch.
There were still dozens of cars and semis in the ditches and medians in that stretch of interstate on Christmas.
The Iowa State Patrol says the driver was drinking and tested just under the legal limit. They took the driver off the road.
Fines total $365 dollars.
