CLEAR LAKE, Iowa - Five people were transported after a multiple-vehicle collision Friday temporarily closed I-35, north of Clear Lake.

A car on southbound I-35 pulled over between the 197 and 194 exits because the female driver was experiencing a medical condition. It was struck from behind by another vehicle, which then flipped over. The first car sustained heavy damage in the back.

The Interstate was closed from around noon to around 1:30 pm traffic was backed up for a couple of miles. The State Patrol says there were no life-threatening injuries.

No other details are available.
