UPDATE: All I-39 lanes open after 6 vehicle pile-up.

ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) - Investigators say icy roads are to blame for a crash that closed part of I-39 near Rothschild.

Newsline 9 learned the six vehicle crash, which involved a semi truck, happened around 10:30 PM, Thursday, when the driver of one car lost control after hitting a slippery patch on the road.

No one was seriously hurt.

Southbound lanes were closed for about two hours.

They've since been opened up.


Part of Highway 51 in Rothschild has been closed due to icy conditions.
