Traffic Open on I-80 After Two Big Rig Accidents

RENO - All lanes of traffic are now open on I-80 after two separate big rig accidents held up traffic Monday morning.

In the first accident near Farad, CHP says the truck driver fell asleep at the wheel. When he woke up, he overcorrected and the semi overturned. He lost his whole load of Kirkland coffee he was carrying.

While traffic was being held to clean up that accident, another one happened at Gold Ranch. A semi-truck driver didn't see traffic stopped and hit a passenger truck. Both drivers were transported to Renown Regional Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.
