A portion of interstate 70 is shut down in Guernsey County following an accident.

The State Highway Patrol says the right lane of interstate 70 West just off interstate 77 is closed as crews work to clean up the scene.

Troopers say at 1:51 Tuesday morning semi truck driver Peter Evan Kobylarz went off the road and struck a tree. Patrol believes the crash was due to severe fog in the area.

Kobylarz was taken to Southeastern Ohio Medical Center for evaluation.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is on the scene.
