INSTITUTE, W.Va. — A tractor trailer accident in Kanawha County shut down one of the busiest stretches of interstate in the state for more than two hours Friday morning.  The fast lane reopened around 6:30 a.m.

The rig overturned just before 4 a.m. in the west bound lanes of I-64 at the Institute exit. The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown.

Traffic was detoured westbound at the MacCorkle Avenue exit in South Charleston.

The truck was hauling canned pineapples.
