Clarion County 911 received a call at 8:27 a.m. and dispatched Clarion-based State Police to the scene where a tractor-trailer had jackknifed, closing the passing lane.

At that point, there were no injuries, but another call came in at 8:32 a.m. reporting another tractor-trailer involved at the scene. It appears the second tractor trailer crashed into the first one.

The roadway re-opened around 11 a.m., according to Randy Bauer, of BauerTruckRepair.com, whose company was on scene to remove the wreckage.

Dispatchers also sent Knox Ambulance and Knox Volunteer Fire Department to the scene.

No other information was available.
