Tractor-trailer overturns on Turnpike
A tractor-trailer wreck near the MacCorkle Avenue exit of the West Virginia Turnpike slowed traffic this morning.
A Kanawha County Metro 911 dispatcher said the accident happened a little after 8:30 a.m. The tractor-trailer, which was carrying a large generator, was in the median and the driver was briefly trapped inside the vehicle, the dispatcher said.
One lane of the interstate was shut down in each direction and drivers were asked to avoid the area. The lanes reopened later in the morning.
