The Iowa State Patrol says an Omaha man was injured during a rollover accident this morning on Interstate 80, in Cass County. Officials say 53-year old John L. Price was transported by Medivac Ambulance to the Cass County Memorial Hospital. Troopers had said earlier, Price was suffering from rib and shoulder pain, after the 1997 Toyota 4-Runner he was driving eastbound on I-80 went out of control at around 8:35-a.m.

The SUV crossed the median and rolled several times before coming to rest on the drivers side on the westbound lanes of I-80, about a mile and a-half east of the Marne exit.

Marne Fire, Atlantic Fire and Rescue and Atlantic Medivac assisted the Patrol at the scene. The accident caused the westbound lanes to be blocked-off for about 70-minutes.
