TWIN FALLS -- Icy roads sent drivers spinning into the ditch just before 12 p.m. on Thursday east of Twin Falls.
Idaho State Police dispatchers say the freeway was quickly closed between milepost 186 and 192 due to "multiple slide-offs and crashes in the area."
Photos sent by the College of Idaho basketball team show several semitrailers flipped near the snowy roadway.
COI Sports Information Director Mike Safford reports 8 to 9 cars in the ditch, along with the semis.
