EMIGRANT GAP, Calif. — All lanes of eastbound Interstate 80 are shut down after multiple vehicle crashes, including an overturned semi, near Emigrant Gap.
The eastbound side of I-80 is expected to be closed “at least 4-5 hours” because of the crashes near the Nyack Road exit, according to Caltrans.
So far there has not been any word or injuries with this crash, however, officials said there are some passengers who will need to be extracted from their vehicles.
According to Caltrans, wet roads are believed to have set off the chain reaction of collisions.
