Westbound traffic is backed up for miles tonight. One big rig went up in flames after reportedly being slammed in the back by another.
The investigation is ongoing. Investigators and crews will remain on scene to sort out what exactly happened. Officials say, traffic is expected to be at a standstill until the rig and debris is fully cleared out, which they say could take another hour or two.
