BOISE, Idaho — Interstate 84 and the Flying Wye are open again, after a crash midday Tuesday that blocked eastbound lanes near the Cole/Overland exit in Boise.

Idaho State Police say one vehicle was involved, and there are no reports of injuries.

ISP troopers and Boise Police responded at about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

According to Boise Fire, a recycling truck wrecked, spilling its load and spilling fuel, which led to a small grass fire. Fire crews responded and extinguished the fire, which burned a patch about 20 by 20 feet in area. 

A photo posted by the Boise Police Department shows an overturned trailer with debris spilling out of it.

The crash blocked the Flying Wye as well as exits 50A and 50B for Cole and Overland roads. The lanes reopened by 2:45 p.m.
