Portion of I-80 to close Wednesday morning (update)

TANNERSVILLE – A short segment of Interstate 80 West will close for a few hours Wednesday morning for a police investigation.  Westbound traffic will be diverted off at Exit 299, starting at 9:30.  Eastbound traffic will not be affected.

This event was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but a postponment was announced Tuesday morning.

Police are still investigating the November 18 crash that eventually claimed four lives.

An eastbound box truck crossed the median and slammed head-on into a westbound car.  The driver of the truck and a passenger in the car died at the scene.  Two other occupants of the car died later.
