Troopers report that one of the tractor-trailers rear-ended the other, causing both to erupt into flames after the crash. Firefighters arrived at the scene and extinguished the flames from the accident. One driver was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. There were no additional injuries reported as a result of the crash but the roadway remained closed for over five hours while authorities were at the scene.
An investigation is ongoing.
