MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - West Virginia State Police said traffic on northbound Interstate 81 was snarled for hours and backed up for miles after a tractor-trailer rolled over Tuesday morning and was struck broadside by another rig, spilling clothing across the roadway.
The accident happened at about 5 a.m. near the 11-mile marker, police said.
Roland Grigg, 44, of Graham, N.C., was driving a Swift Transportation truck northbound when he lost control of the tractor-trailer, going off the eastern side of the road.
Grigg tried to regain control, but the cab skidded into the median and the trailer tipped over, blocking both lanes, the report said.
