No injuries were reported Wednesday morning when a truck jack-knifed on Hwy. 287, partially blocking the northbound lanes near Henrietta.

Lisa Marie Frame, 45, of Weinart, was traveling north approximately 5 miles northeast of Henrietta in a 2007 Kenworth truck. According to the drive, she was cut off by a brown Ford Taurus. Frame was attempting to pass the Ford sedan in the left hand lane, when the car moved from the right lane. Frame avoided contact with the sedan by veering into the center median.
