Two semis collided on I-70 near Altamont early Thursday morning.

The crash happened about 2am four miles east of Altamont.  Witnesses at the scene say one of the trailers was split in half and said there was debris everywhere.  No one was injured, though, other than a cut behind the ear of one of the drivers.

I-70 westbound east of Altamont was closed to travel for about an hour due to the crash.  State police, Effingham County sheriff's deputies, Altamont firefighters, Effingham City-County Ambulance Service and Altamont police all assisted at the scene.
