TRUCKEE, Calif. (KTXL) — A collision involving two semi-trucks late Monday night is impacting traffic early Tuesday.

Eastbound Interstate 80 is closed at Castle Peak due to “two jack-knifed semi-trucks” near Donner Summit, Caltrans reported.

The crash happened around 11 p.m., and officials have not released an estimated time of reopening for I-80.

The California Highway Patrol said no one was hurt in the crash, but it would take a while to clear the scene.

The wet weather may have played a role in the crash.

“Please remember to slow for weather conditions as roads are wet,” Caltrans said in a tweet.
