Overnight accident keeps part of I-40 closed | Transportation
A fiery semi crash overnight has forced crews to keep a part of I-40 shut down Thursday morning.
Right now, one westbound lane is open from 98th Street to Atrisco Vista, as crews clean up debris in the road.
Crews were called to the scene around 11 p.m. Wednesday after a semi carrying charcoal and lighter fluid burst into flames after rear-ending another semi.
A husband and wife in the semi were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
We’re told they lost their family dog in the fire.
