KEYSTONE, Iowa (AP) - Three people were killed in a four-vehicle crash in eastern Iowa.

The Iowa State Patrol says three people died and several others were injured Thursday morning after the driver of a minivan lost control of the vehicle on ice and another car crashed into it.

That collision caused two other cars to crash.

The crashes occurred around 5:20 a.m. on an ice-covered section of Highway 30 near Keystone, west of Cedar Rapids. Officials say 10 people were inside the van when it crashed and two of them were ejected from the vehicle.

Authorities closed off a section of the highway for three hours as multiple ambulances and a medical helicopter arrived at the site. It was reopened around 8:30 a.m.

Authorities have not released the names of those involved.
