Two witnesses told police that the dump truck was parked in the center lane of the highway with no lights on, and that the Wrangler didn’t see the truck as they approached. The Jeep tried to swerve around the truck, witnesses said, but crashed into the back of it, rolling the Wrangler onto its side.
The crash closed the highway for a little over four and a half hours Saturday morning.
It is unclear why the dump truck was stopped, or if there will be any charges related to this crash.
