Kadaess Adams and Braden Brown, both 12, and Oneimus Quaterman, 11, killed in collision with semi truck on Interstate 80 near Coralville, Iowa
The accident happened just after 1:00 p.m. Sunday at mile marker 235, just west of Coralville. An eastbound car tried to make a U-turn to head back west and it was broad-sided by a semi as it turned into the eastbound lanes.
Investigators say Edwards was driving in the right-hand lane of westbound I-80 when he slowed down in an attempt to use the median crossover and make a U-turn, in order to travel back east.
The untimely deaths of three young eastern Iowa boys are an unfortunate reminder to obey traffic signs and not use medians as a way to U-turn.
