I-680 Southbound to I-80 is temporarily closed down due to a semi-truck crash.
Omaha police said a semi is jack-knifed in the area of I-80 eastbound right at the I-680 split.
The semi was located blocking the eastbound lanes of I-80 coming from I-680 southbound.
The semi was eastbound on I-80, and lost control in the area of I-680.
Omaha police say it struck the center median between mile markers 446.0 & 446.2, went across the eastbound lanes of traffic, to its final resting point.
OPD officers with the help of NSP have the lanes of I-680 southbound to I-80 eastbound closed at this time.
Crews are siphoning the remaining fuel from the semi before it can be recovered.
Cargo also has to be unloaded and transferred to a new semi/trailer.
There is still no word on when the interstate will re-open.
