"A Class A motorhome hauling a suburban went off the roadway due to a tire blowout. Currently, lane 1 is shut down and will update when open again. Recovery of the vehicles is underway."

If you are able to, authorities suggest avoiding that area altogether, until they are able to get the vehicles back up to the roadway. Obviously, with vehicles of this size, moving them up an embankment will not be an easy feat.

There's no news yet on if anyone was injured. We will update this story as more information becomes available.
