Seven tractor-trailers and two passenger vehicles were involved in a massive pileup that closed I-80 in both directions in western Wyoming for several hours Wednesday.

The chain-reaction crash occurred Wednesday morning at mile marker 27 on snow-covered I-80 westbound near Evanston.

The Unita County Fire and Ambulance reported on its Facebook page that four people were taken to a nearby hospital for minor injuries.

One of the trucks was carrying cases of beer which spilled onto the highway.

I-80 was reopened at about 4:30 p.m.
