According to reports, a 2013 Nissan NV crashed into the rear of a 2015 Jeep Compass on the eastbound side of Interstate 70 just west of Interstate 270. The impact of the crash caused the Jeep to strike the rear of a 2016 Kentworth T680. The impact of the crash caused the Jeep to travel off the right side of the roadway and strike a guardrail.
