Truck Accident Closes Part Of I-64.


December 4, 2006

Around midnight, on I-64 west, at the US 250 west interchange, a tractor trailer hit a VW golf, which was stopped because of an earlier accident.

The truck then flipped. It also spilled 150 to 300 gallons of diesel fuel on I-64.

Some of this fuel spilled off the bridge onto Rt. 250. Those lanes are now open, but were previously closed for several hours.

Crews are putting down sand to absorb the remaining fuel. The truck has been removed.
