An interstate semi accident is causing headaches for motorists and authorities Tuesday morning.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said that one lane of I-70 west in Guernsey County is closed between Old Washington and Quaker City due to a vehicle crash.

The State Highway Patrol said that a semi went through a guardrail, leaving the trailer on the highway while the cab went over an embankment.

It’s estimated the lane will reopen by 6pm Tuesday evening. Motorists should expect delays until the problem is cleared.
