A multi-vehicle crash shutdown a portion of Interstate 81 in Lebanon County on Friday. 

Emergency dispatchers say crews were called to mile marker 83 on Interstate 81 Southbound around 4 p.m. and say at least 3 to 5 vehicles were involved. 

Two ambulances transported patients from the scene, but there are no fatalities. The victims conditions are unknown at this time. 

The crash involved 3 tractor trailers that overturned according to a PennDOT spokesperson. Hazmat was called due to one of the overturned trucks carrying batteries. 

I-81 southbound is still closed, PennDOT hopes to have it open around midnight.
