LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – Eastbound Interstate 215 near Gibson is shut down this morning after a double semitractor-trailer struck the center divide and eventually jackknifed.
The Nevada Highway Patrol says the accident occurred around 4:20 a.m. Two other vehicles that avoided the semi struck each other on the shoulder. A second semi veered into rocks to escape both crashes.
NHP says a slick roadway from recent rainfall is believed to be a contributing factor. Hazmat crews are cleaning the spilled diesel.
The road is expected to be closed for the next two to three hours.
Drivers should exit at Stephanie and return to the highway at Gibson.
