Overturned Semi Closes I-70 Near Norwich

by Kelly Choate on December 29, 2012

It’s a traffic nightmare on Interstate 70.  An overturned semi blocked the westbound lanes near the Norwich exit.

The State Highway Patrol said the semi was traveling eastbound when it went over the median embankment and overturned in the westbound lanes.

No injuries were reported, but traffic was backed up for miles.  Troopers were directing vehicles to the New Concord exit and onto Route 40.

No other details are available at this time, and the crash remains under investigation.
