Semi Rollover Tuesday Afternoon Near Fairfield

Written by on November 24, 2021

Fairfield, IA- A semi rollover accident in Jefferson County blocked both westbound lanes of Highway 34 east of Fairfield Tuesday afternoon.  The Iowa State Patrol says a 2016 Volvo semi driven by 39-year old Johnnie Meling of Indianola was westbound on Highway 34 when it failed to negotiate a long gradual curve near the Osage Avenue exit ramp. 

The semi drove off the roadway and onto the shoulder and ditch.  The semi then rolled over onto its passenger side, blocking both westbound lanes.  The driver was uninjured in the accident.  The patrol was assisted at the scene by the Iowa Department of Transportation and Fairfield Emergency Responders.
