BILLINGS — UPDATE 9:55 p.m. - Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Toni Snelling said a pickup truck hauling a camper jackknifed and blocked both eastbound lanes of I-90 near mile marker 464 at about 5 p.m. Sunday.

Traffic was moving again shortly after 6 p.m.

Snelling said the accident happened after an 18-wheeler passed the truck hauling a camper.

The gust of wind created by the pass caused the camper to become unstable. The truck and camper eventually jackknifed.

One male and one female in the jackknifed truck were wearing seat belts and sustained no injuries.

UPDATE - One lane of traffic is now open to eastbound travelers.

Traffic is backed up on Interstate 90 Eastbound near the Pryor Creek exit due to a truck pulling a trailer that has jackknifed.

Yellowstone County Sheriffs said that traffic could be delayed for up to one hour.

A tow truck is en route.
