I-86 Reopens

Both lanes of Interstate 86 between Olean and Cuba opened at around noon today after being closed following the crash of a tractor-trailer carrying explosive material last night.

Authorities were waiting until crews trained in removing explosives could get the material onto another truck and transport it from the scene.

The accident happened at just before 7 o'clock last night near Hinsdale.

The driver, 62-year-old David Barnett, and his passenger, 36-year-old Jeffrey Barnett, both from Joplin, Missouri, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the Barnetts were on their way to Quebec when David Barnett swerved to avoid hitting a deer in the road.
