State Troopers are investigating an accident that happened in the eastbound lanes of I-64 on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2015. A tractor-trailer rolled over in the escape ramp at mile marker 136 going down Sandstone Mountain in Raleigh County. It happened in the same location as a fatal accident that completely closed the interstate Wednesday night.
There is no indication of any link between this accident and the one the previous night. Investigators said there were no injuries and the driver told troopers his brakes failed while coming down the mountain. Drivers should use caution in the area until the truck can be removed from the escape ramp.
