An accident, involving at least nine vehicles, closed the northbound lanes of the Interstate 81 for more than an hour, causing detours and delays for motorists.

No fatalities were reported, but one vehicle passenger was flown to a hospital for serious injuries.

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department and the West Virginia State Police were investigating the crashes, which were attributed to heavy rainfall and low visibility.

No further information on the accident was available Monday night.
