A tractor-trailer crashed over an embankment Thursday afternoon on Interstate 70 in Washington County, sending its driver to the hospital and snarling traffic for hours.
The condition of the driver and other details weren't available early Friday, according to state police.
One I-70 lane had to remain closed Friday morning because the tractor-trailer had to be removed, according to state police.
The 7 p.m. accident shut down all eastbound lanes between exits 25 and 32 Thursday near the Bentleyville exit for at least a few hours while crews brought in equipment to clear the wreckage, a trooper with Pennsylvania State Police's Washington barracks said.
No other vehicles were involved.
