MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A tractor trailer tanker hauling cement overturned on busy I-81 early Monday morning, shutting down the interstate for hours.

A representative from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office


confirms the accident, which occurred around the 7 mile marker southbound, resulted in non-life threatening injuries to the driver.

That crash shut down traffic in all southbound lanes around 5:45 during the morning commute. Just an hour before, one lane of traffic had been blocked due to an earlier traffic accident in the 4 o’clock hour.
