Only minor injuries were reported following a rollover accident Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 80, in Adair County. The Iowa State Patrol says 61-year old Timothy Turk, of Adair, was driving a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire eastbound on the interstate, when he reportedly blacked-out for a moment. His car entered the median and crossed into the westbound lanes of travel before Turk over-corrected. The action caused his vehicle re-enter the median and cross both eastbound lanes of traffic before it rolled over and slid into the south ditch. The accident happened at around 3:55-p.m.
