UPDATE: All lanes of I-80 back open near Iowa City after crashes

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Transportation says that all lanes of I-80 are back open following two separate crashes.

I-80 eastbound was closed between Exit 246: IA 1; Dodge Street and Exit 249: Herbert Hoover Highway also known as County Road F44 due to an accident. 

A second crash had blocked the left lane of westbound I-80. 

The Iowa State Patrol says the 54-year-old driver of a semi has been treated for injuries and released from the hospital after his truck turned over on the highway.

The crash backed up traffic for miles, and for several hours as hazmat crews were cleaning up the scene.

The patrol says Dennis Andrulis, from Illinois - rolled the semi after his right wheels dropped off the shoulder of the highway and he lost control.
