Posted: Updated:

NBC RIGHT NOW- Sunday evening around 5 o'clock, a pick up truck traveling westbound on Interstate 82 when the driver lost control, crossed the median and hit a semi-truck traveling in the opposite direction. 

The accident started a fire in the median and because of the wind, the fire jumped across the highway and burned about 100 acres. 

Multiple crews responded and it took a few hours to get it out and mopped up. No serious injuries were reported. The driver of the semi-truck was taken to the hospital.
