OSHP: Truck spilled 45,000 pounds of gravel onto roadway Monday morning


GUERNSEY COUNTY, Ohio -- Both lanes of Interstate 70 have been re-opened to traffic after a semi struck a cow in Guernsey County early Monday morning.
According to the Cambridge Post of the State Highway Patrol, multiple 911 callers notified authorities of the collision at around 12:40 a.m. Monday. Troopers said that the semi tractor-trailer was traveling eastbound on I-70, four miles west of the weigh station, when it struck a cow on the interstate and overturned, spilling around 45,000 pounds of limestone into the right lane and part of the shoulder. The driver was not injured, but the cow did not survive.
Crews from ODOT and the New Concord and Cassell Station Volunteer Fire Departments were called to the scene to assist in the clean-up effort. ODOT completed clearing the lane at around 10:00 a.m. Monday.
