    PA I-80 West at Exit 111 Accident

    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.

    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.
