State police dispatchers say commuters on Interstate 81 could face some delays this morning. State police say around 12:30, a tractor trailer overturned in the southbound lane near mile marker 167, just south of the Arcadia exit. It was carrying crayons. The truck isn't blocking traffic, but V-DOT has closed the right hand lane while they remove it. No one was injured and there's no word on any charges for the driver.
