A pair of motorcycles had lost traction trying to move through the piles of mayflies. Thankfullyy no one was hurt.
“Biggest thing I noticed was after cars were stopped and sitting for so long while we’re trying to get cars moving again is they were probably piled knee high in front of their headlights from just sitting there,” said Reserve Officer Stephen Thayer of the Sabula Police Department.
“We had Iowa DOT came in with a snow plow and actually plow them off and then sand it because it was still pretty slippery. And then Illinois plowed their side,” Thayer added.
