Gina Jungmann just sent us the picture below, which she took around 10:15 a.m. She said, "There were 7 wrecks between mile marker 129 & 131. Mostly semis. Both lanes of traffic had wrecks. We sat in traffic for a very long time."

The following picture comes from viewer Gary Ancell, who said the crash happened sometime around 9:30. "I heard very loud crashing noises from my apartment and looked out the window and saw this. Right now tow trucks are pulling cars and the tractor trailer - I believe 4 of them are still in the median," Ancell said in an email to KOMU 8 News.
