Crash kills driver and snarls capital city traffic

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — An early morning crash on a Charleston interstate snarls traffic near the State Capitol complex.

The semi, hauling tires, overturned in the northbound lanes just before the Greenbrier Street exit. The accident took out several light poles causing them to fall into the south bound lanes. The truck also spilled about 50 gallons of diesel fuel onto the highway.

The driver of the semi was killed in the crash. His name has not been released.

The accident was finally cleaned up shortly before noon.  Authorities haven’t indicated if it was a weather related crash.
