Truck Fatalities In Iowa

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- It's nearly impossible to travel for any stretch on the interstate without seeing one - we're talking about large trucks.

They are responsible for transporting goods across America's Heartland. With all that travel, however, comes danger.
