Route 20 is reopened from the earlier accident. Traffic backed up for quite a distance, a deputy reports.
A deputy is giving one of the vehicle drivers a ride to Flying J.
Another deputy shared that he just learned the Batavia Downs parking lot is empty, so he's going to start sending some of the semi-truck drivers that have no place to park to that location.
"Some of them say say they need fuel. Unfortunately, I can't help them there."
UPDATE 5:22 p.m.: A deputy reports that Kmart is not permitting truckers to park in their empty lot. Approved parking lots are Walmart, Home Depot and Batavia Downs.
Also, we didn't catch a location, but a deputy was dispatched to check on two dogs that were left outside.
