The initial investigation indicated a 2005 Dodge pickup truck was traveling east when it changed lanes to avoid another vehicle entering the interstate. That’s when the truck hit the front of a 1996 Freightliner tractor-trailer, causing both vehicles to travel into the grass median.

Anaya said the pickup truck overturned in the median, while the tractor-trailer drove down the median and came to a stop.

No one was injured.

The westbound lane and eastbound lane closest to the median were closed, but have since reopened.

No further information has been released. Stay with WAVY.com for updates on this developing story.
