One lane of Interstate 81 is still closed this morning after an accident last night that added to Memorial Day weekend traffic.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Pulaski Co./Last Night;


Traffic on northbound Interstate 81 in Pulaski County creeped along following a tractor trailer accident at the 97 mile marker.
A truck ran off the right side of the road, flipped on top of a guardrail, and ended up on a bridge.
The rig lost the load it was carrying: air conditioner parts and magazines.
The driver was taken to Pulaski Community Hospital, his injuries do NOT appear life-threatening.
Traffic was delayed for a few hours, as crews cleaned up the debris in the highway.
Authorities are still working to open the second lane.

Clark's Cave is located in northern Bath County, in an area where natural underground formations are common.
As the region's reputation for caving has grown, so has the need for more cave rescue training.
