A semi accident causes problems for those traveling on Interstate 70 Wednesday morning.

Around 4:10am New Concord and Perry Township Fire Departments were called to a semi on its side in the westbound lanes of the Interstate between Norwich and Sonora Road exit.

The tanker was carrying liquid asphalt and leaking through the vent hole in the top of the trailer. The driver reportedly had a laceration to the head and was out of the vehicle.

The right lane of I-70 west is closed as a result of the accident.
