Semi-truck, car head-on on Highway 140 west of Klamath Falls has forced the closure of the road nine miles west of Klamath Falls, just past the Running Y Ranch Resort turnoff.

The westbound lane remains closed, but the eastbound lane is now open. Expect 20-minute delays.

The crash is between a semi-truck and automobile.

Some traffic is being rerouted along Lakeshore Drive, according to the state Department of Transportation.

We will update as more information becomes available.
