Original Story
 
An ambulance and a flat bed semi truck collided on Interstate 79 south near Weston Tuesday morning and closed the highway for almost two hours.
 
The collision happened south of the Weston exit at mile marker 97.5. Lewis County Sheriff's Department and the Weston Fire Department were called to the scene. An accident reconstructionist was also called in to investigate.
 
Drivers on I-79 south of Weston were stuck for an hour and a half until crews opened the shoulder to allow them to pass through.
 
Crews on the scene and the Lewis County 911 officials were not able to confirm any injuries from the scene. Check back for updates.
