Wreck snarls traffic on Interstate 79 near Morgantown

10:45 a.m. Wednesday update  One southbound lane is open but traffic is slow-moving.

10:15 a.m. Wednesday update   West Virginia 511 says both southbound lanes remain closed and cleanup is in progress.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Traffic is out a standstill this morning on Interstate 79 in Monongalia County. Both southbound lanes are shutdown due to a tractor-trailer accident just south of the Goshen Road exit.

A semi towing two trailers crashed at mile marker 145. One of the trailers flipped over and came to rest on the concrete barrier. No injuries have been reported.

Crews are on scene but motorists should expect long delays and find an alternate route if possible.

Traffic is backed up southbound to the I-68 merger with I-79.
