WV Turnpike reopens after 15 auto accidents including a tractor-trailer accident
On behalf of West Law Offices, Charleston, WV — Due to heavy rain and slippery roads, 15 wrecks occurred this morning in Southern West Virginia, including a tractor-trailer accident on Interstate 77 near the Sharon exit.
The tractor-trailer jackknifed in the northbound lanes of the West Virginia Turnpike, shutting down all northbound lanes and one southbound lane, a Kanawha County Metro 911 dispatcher said.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported, and the lanes were cleared for traffic by 10 a.m. However, the roads are still wet and the WV Turnpike usually has a volume of traffic on Friday. So, please drive carefully.
