A three-vehicle accident backed up traffic on Highway 163 near Pella for over a half an hour Saturday night. The accident happened shortly after 6:00 p.m. in the westbound lane of Highway 163 near mile marker 39 at the intersection of 195th Street.

Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Bigouette tells KNIA/KRLS news that a vehicle traveling southbound on 195th entered cross traffic on the highway and struck a westbound van in the right front of the vehicle. The collision spun the car into a third vehicle, a small SUV. The car and SUV came to a rest in the westbound lane, while the van was spun across the intersection into the eastbound lane and came to a rest facing south.
