That vehicle was driven by Thomas Butler, age 52, of Waterloo, IA. Butler was taken to Allen Hospital for his injuries.

A third vehicle, heading westbound on Donald Street collided with the semi. That vehicle was driven by Sabrina Lee, age 29, of Waterloo. She was taken to Allen Hospital for her injuries.

Two children, a 7 year-old male and a 5 year-old female, who were passengers in the Lee vehicle, were injured. The female was ejected from the vehicle. They were taken to Allen Hospital. All injuries are non-life threatening.
