8 vehicles involved
It started around 4:30 Friday afternoon as eastbound I-80 slowed to one lane entering a construction zone. A semi driver apparantly didn't see the slowing traffic or was unable to slow his rig. He veered to the righthand shoulder, but clipped several vehicles causing a chain reaction.
There were only three injuries. The semi driver and two children in one of the other vehicles were taken to the hospital.
A second minor crash occurred in the westbound lanes as a motorist slowed and tried to take a cell phone picture.
Both lanes were reopened to traffic around 9:30 P-M Friday night.
