Eastbound I-80 is closed on Christmas Day due to a traffic jam

Eastbound I-80 was closed on Christmas Day due to an incident involving many semi-trucks.

The crash occurred early Monday morning, during a blizzard warning. A camera from the Nebraska Department of Transportation captured jackknifed semis fully obstructing traffic…with scores of automobiles stalled behind them.

Eastbound traffic on the freeway was being redirected north into York and then east into Waco.

There has been no word about any injuries as of yet.
