Northbound lanes closed on I-81 north in Botetourt County

The northbound lanes of I-81 are still closed this morning because of an accident last night. It happened around 10:30 at mile marker 168 in Botetourt County.

Authorities tell us a car hit a guardrail and spun around on the roadway. In order to miss the car, a tractor trailer swerved and flipped over in the median. The driver was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Both lanes northbound are still closed this morning and will be for several hours. Traffic is being detoured to exit 168.
