UPDATE (9:35 p.m.)

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - At least three people injured, including a 14-year-old, following a wrong-way accident on Interstate 29 that caused a multi-vehicle pile-up, Friday night.

Officials with the Sioux City Police Department say the crash, which took place shortly before 6 p.m. Friday, was caused by a wrong way driver.

Police are unsure how the southbound driver entered the northbound lanes of Interstate 29 near the Wesley Parkway interchange. But, investigators say the driver struck another oncoming vehicle. Police say the accident led to a chain reaction involving three other vehicles.

Investigators haven't identified the wrong-way driver, and say the driver isn't cooperating with the investigation. Police say they are seeking a warrant to test the driver's blood.

No one else involved in the crash have been identified either. Investigators call the injuries suffered in the accident "non-life-threatening".

Police say the case is still under investigation, and expect to release a more detailed report on Monday.
