Part of Interstate 80 in Carbon County had to be shut down because of an accident involving at least three tractor trailers.

It happened around 2 a.m. Tuesday in I-80's eastbound lanes in Kidder Township.

It's not clear if anyone was hurt in the crash, but reports from the scene indicate that there may have been a fuel leak from at least one of the trucks.
