A two-year-old girl from Minneapolis was killed and her mother seriously injured when a semi rear-ended their car that had slowed in traffic on Interstate 80 about 35 miles west of Des Moines, Iowa. A GoFundMe posting identifies the child as Aurora Wheeler. Her mother, Bethany, was hospitalized in Des Moines. The father, Isaac Wheeler, who was driving, did not require hospitalization. The truck driver, a 28-year-old man from South Dakota, was not injured, nor was the driver of a van that was also hit. The Iowa State Patrol says the backup was caused by another semi in the ditch further ahead on the freeway.
