Overturned asphalt truck causes traffic halt on Route 50

Traffic traveling west on Route 50 in Clarksburg came to a halt after a truck hauling asphalt overturned Wednesday morning.
Officers with the Clarksburg Police Department said a car abruptly stopped to make an illegal turn in the median. Vehicles behind it attempted to brake in order to avoid collisions. However the truck ran off the road into the median to avoid hitting cars in front of it, overturned and then hit the car which initially caused the incident.
The driver of the truck was transported to a hospital from the incident. The driver of the car was not injured and will be cited for the illegal turn.
The Clarksburg Police Department's investigation into the accident is ongoing.
