Authorities say a semi tractor trailer jackknifed on Interstate 70 near the Hebron Exit.

It happened just before 12:00 p.m. Wednesday.

Trooper Randy Lewis with the Granville Post of the State Highway Patrol says the semi was westbound on I-70 in the right lane driving in heavy rain.

Lewis says the driver lost control and went off the left side of the road.

He says the semi then struck the median barrier and went partially off the right side of the road blocking the right lane.

The semi driver was not hurt in the accident.
