Jack-knifed semi cleared from I-70

Summit Daily News / Caddie Nath A semi truck jack-knifed on Interstate 70 eastbound Tuesday morning. Authorities had reduced traffic to a single lane around the wreck as clean up efforts continued.

A semi truck that jack-knifed on a wet and slushy Interstate 70 Tuesday morning just west of the Frisco business exit has been cleared from the eastbound lanes, where it was slowing traffic this morning.

It did not initially appear that any other cars were involved in the accident. There has been no report yet as to any injuries resulting from the wreck or what caused the accident.

The truck was facing the opposite direction of traffic at 10:15 a.m. as Colorado State Patrol and local law enforcement agencies skirted traffic to the left lane around the accident.

This story will be updated if more information becomes available.
