HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — The westbound lanes of Interstate 64 reopened in Cabell County late Friday night following a tractor trailer accident that shut down the busy stretch of highway for almost five hours.

It happened in Huntington.

Officials said a tractor trailer flipped on its side at about 5 p.m. Friday in the construction zone between the 29th Street and Hal Greer Boulevard exits.  Reports indicated that truck got caught on a guardrail after running over a hill.

Because of the road closure, Friday evening traffic was backed up for miles along I-64.

The driver of the truck was being treated for minor injuries.

    If you will check the records of this particular truck driver you will find he attended a federally approved truck driving training school without on the job experience . When trucking was de-regulated this brought on schools that turn out truck drivers such as this one.
