Single-truck crash shuts down ramp on I-80

Posted by wlpo on September 1, 2015

A semi crash Tuesday morning looked a lot worse that it really was.

Several cars littered the ramp from Interstate 180 to eastbound 80 shortly before 10 o’clock Tuesday. Yakubov Rakhimdzhon of Colorado was trying to merge onto 80 when his semi hauling several empty cars left the road for whatever reason. After the trucker tried to overcorrect back onto the road, the semi rolled on its side, throwing several cars across the ramp.

Rakhimdzhon was given a ticket for improper lane usage. The ramp was shut down for several hours as emergency crews cleared the scene.

The trucker wasn’t hurt.
