A major roadway is shut down following an early Thursday morning accident.

The State Highway Patrol Cambridge Post said that Interstate 70 eastbound is closed in Cambridge at mile post 179, that’s just east of the State Route 209 interchange.

In addition the interstate is not accessible from State Route 209.

The patrol said the road is closed due to a crash between a semi truck and a car that occurred around 1:50 a.m. Thursday morning.

There’s no word on when the roadway will reopen, but troopers said to expect it to be closed for several more hours.
