UPDATE: 215 reopened to traffic after semi-truck crash

Posted: Updated:

HENDERSON, Nev. - A crash involving a semi-truck caused delays on I-215 near Stephanie Street for much of Monday morning. The eastbound lanes were closed for several hours.

The accident occurred shortly before 4:30 a.m. Nevada Highway Patrol says the semi-truck crashed into the center median on the 215 eastbound and jackknifed. The collision sent debris into the westbound lanes of I-215 and caused a minor accident between two cars. Also, a second semi-truck and two vehicles traveling eastbound veered to avoid hitting the first semi-truck and ended up in the gravel on the side of the freeway.

The jackknifed semi leaked approximately 100 gallons of fuel on to the road. Crews worked to clean the highway before it reopened. No injuries were reported.
