    Per pa511.com (Travel Delays page):

    PennDOT: multi vehicle accident on I-80 westbound between West Exit 120 - PA 879 (in Lawrence Township) and West Exit 111 - PA 153 (in Pine Township) all lanes closed.

    Traffic cam in the area showed two trucks burning when I looked at around 7:30 AM. Camera now (7:55 AM) is either obscured by fog or smoke.

    Comment at 7:55 AM was apparently due to smoke. At around 8:12 AM, I was able to get this snapshot from the traffic cam. Here's hoping the driver made it out okay. Can't find any information about injuries.

    ...and dot was heavily working that area yesterday. Not that that makes any difference to this accident. Hope everyone heals fast.

    they said the back up was 9 miles long when they reported it on the Nemo show, then again it was a trucker that called it in so was probably more like 4 miles.

    Ivanov and his passenger, Vicktor Motryuk of Strongville, OH were not injured.
    Police say Ivanov was cited for various vehicle code violations.

    I'm not even going to start.

    I drove by eastbound earlier today, and they had the WB lanes shut down at the 120.
