UPDATE: Toll booth damaged in accident on WV Turnpike

Posted: Updated:

The West Virginia Turnpike division of the State Police told 59News that a toll booth at the Ghent barrier was knocked off its foundation on Tuesday.

A military truck hauling a piece of construction equipment was moving through the toll plaza at around 12:30 p.m. then the load hit one of the toll booths. The load was apparently too wide to fit through the lane. No one was inside the attenuator at the time, but one toll worker, who was standing near the booth at the time, did receive minor injuries. 

The West Virginia Department of Transportation said that an attenuator was damaged in the accident. According to the wv511.org web site one of the six toll lanes is closed because of the accident.
