Snow causes treacherous travel, I-77 lane closure

CAMP CREEK — A tractor-trailer flipped on its side Saturday afternoon at the 16.5-mile marker in the southbound lanes of I-77. One lane was open to traffic at about 1:15 p.m., but the lane near the tractor-trailer rig remained closed for more than two hours.

A firefighter with the East River Volunteer Fire Department who was on the scene said the driver was uninjured in the incident.

“DOH crews are working to get the other lane open out there now,” the firefighter said.

The Princeton Rescue Squad and West Virginia State Police responded.
