Traffic snarled on westbound Interstate 40 due to overturned semi

MORIARTY, NM - A truck accident snarled traffic on Interstate 40 on Tuesday morning, according to KOAT.

Authorities said a semi-truck overturned on Interstate 40 at mile marker 192 near Moriarty.  The westbound lanes of the interstate were shut down due to the crash, causing major traffic delays stretching for miles.  Some traffic was reported to have been detoured onto Route 66.

Westbound I-40 reopened later in the morning after emergency crews responded to the scene.  There was no word on whether anyone had been injured. Our Albuquerque truck accident lawyer will update this news blog with any additional information as it comes to light.
