WHEELING - An accident reduced Interstate 70 eastbound to one lane on Thursday evening after a semi truck overturned just after 5 p.m. near exit 2A.

Two witnesses said that the incident was one they will never forget, as they saw the truck strike the highway wall before it flipped. Wheeling Police said that the truck driver was trying to get out of the way of a previous accident, and swerved, causing the truck to flip.
