Rig crash snarls I-70 traffic

Firefighters work at the scene of a tractor-trailer crash Thursday on Interstate 70 near the Ginger Hill-Bentleyville exit. The eastbound lanes were closed for hours afterward.

By the Mon Valley Independent

A tractor-trailer rolled off the eastbound lane of Interstate 70 and over a steep embankment just before the Ginger Hill-Bentleyville exit Thursday afternoon.

The accident shut down eastbound lanes between exits 25 and 32. Traffic was being detoured off the interstate via Route 519 south to U.S. 40 East to Route 917 North to Bentleyville, then back to I-70.
