HUXLEY, Iowa (AP) - Police have reopened a stretch of Interstate 35 in central Iowa following a massive pileup involving more than 50 vehicles and injured several people.

Police believe the Saturday pileup near Huxley was caused by a quick-moving winter storm that swept the area, causing slick roads and low visibility. Cars, trucks and semitrailers were caught up in the chain-reaction pileup.

The Des Moines Register reports that the pileup shut down the interstate for two hours Saturday morning.

Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Nathan Ludwig says multiple people were injured and taken to hospitals, including one who had to be flown from the scene in a medical helicopter.
