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.
