Nevada Highway Patrol says both lanes are back open on I-80 west at Orchard, near Derby Dam after a 20-car pileup and gravel spill.

Troopers tell us a truck somehow lost its load of gravel, and crashed into a wall, guardrail and other vehicles just after 9am on Monday.

Nine people suffered minor to moderate injuries in the accident. One woman stuck in traffic was taken to a hospital after experiencing labor pains.
