June 10, 2013

MARLOWE, W.Va. — Two-tractor trailers were involved in a crash on southbound Interstate 81 in Berkeley County around the 23-mile marker late Monday, according to a Washington County 911 supervisor.

One of the rigs ended up on a concrete barrier wall and the other is in the roadway, the supervisor said.

The accident occurred near the exit for Marlowe and Falling Waters, W.Va.

An alert from Berkeley County 911 sent out at 9:59 p.m. said the interstate would be shut down for an extended period of time.

The supervisor said Washington County authorities were notified because the accident will probably cause southbound traffic to start backing up in Washington County soon.
