Overturned truck causes I-81 shutdown in W.Va.


MARTINSBURG, W. Va. - Traffic was halted on northbound Interstate 81 for about an hour late Tuesday afternoon after a truck overturned, spilling its load of steel pieces on the road about six miles north of the Virginia state line.

A small car had slowed to make a U-turn in a a gravel area on the median when a tractor-trailer swerved to miss it, said Cpl. J.L. Folk of the West Virginia State Police.

As the truck swerved, it blocked the vision of a second tractor-trailer with a flatbed driven by Anthony Roose, 50, of Bedford, Pa.

Roose's truck also swerved and missed the car, but overturned, dumping its load of steel pieces such as beams and trusses, which had been strapped down on the flatbed, Folk said.

The lane was closed, then re-opened to one-lane traffic while the debris was being cleared.

Roose was sent to the hospital, treated and released, Folk said. The car that was making the U-turn got onto the southbound lane and drove off.
