UPDATE: Interstate 81 Crash Scene Cleared in Susquehanna County

UPDATE:

Up until about 10 a.m. Interstate 81 southbound was closed.

A view from Skycam 16 shows crews clearing away debris from one of several tractor-trailers that wrecked on this roadway Wednesday morning.

State police say multiple crashes happened around 3 a.m. between the Lenox and Lenoxville exits in both directions of the interstate.

Both directions near Lenox were shut down for almost seven hours.

State police say they're still sorting out the exact number of vehicles involved, but do know that similar crashes happened in both directions of I-81 because of the ice from freezing rain.

According to PennDOT, all major interstates in our area are open to traffic at noon and there are no backups to report.
