Texas man killed in Saturday crash on I-80
Authorities released the name this morning of a Texas man who was killed Friday afternoon in a three-vehicle crash between the Baxter and Colfax interchanges on Interstate Highway 80.
The Iowa State Patrol and State Medical Examiner's Office are still investigating the details of the crash, which occurred around 2:30 p.m. Friday at the 156-mile marker on I-80. According to an initial crash report issued by the State Patrol, Maximiliano Arizpe, 21, of Edcouch, Texas, crashed his 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis into the back of a 2007 Mazda two-door driven by Patrick Calhoun, 60, of Kenosha, Wis.
According to the investigating officer, Trooper Chris Starrett of the State Patrol, Arizpe and Calhoun were traveling westbound on I-80. Calhoun's vehicle was pushed in the direction of a 2011 International semitrailer that was parked on the inside shoulder and partially in the inside lane, but Calhoun was able to swerve to avoid hitting it.
