An accident happened in Cedar Rapids Saturday morning at the intersection of First Avenue and Wiley Boulevard SW. As I approached the scene, I noticed the traffic signals were not operating. From every direction, the lights were off. There was a lot of confusion, and vehicles were pulled over to the side of the road.

That's when I looked over and saw one vehicle in somebody's front yard. It looked like the driver even took out a street sign before crashing in some trees. No official word on how this accident happened or who was driving the vehicle.
