A four-vehicle accident on Iowa Highway 141 at First Avenue in Perry about 2:30 p.m. Thursday led to emergency calls for extra ambulances when as many as five injuries were reported.
Details are still sketchy at this hour, but the collision involved at least one semi-tractor trailer and a passenger minivan.
Officers of the Perry Police Department and members of Perry First Responders, Perry Volunteer Fire Department and Dallas County EMS were soon on scene.
Emergency workers took steps to free at least one person who appeared to be trapped in the minivan. The number and extent of injuries are unknown at this hour.
A Dallas County EMS ambulance transported four people to Dallas County Hospital shortly after 3 p.m. in what Dallas County EMS called a “non-emergent transport.”
The Iowa State Patrol was en route at last report. The cause of the pileup is under investigation.
