WASHINGTON COUNTY, Pa. - Slick roads may be to blame for a tractor-trailer rollover accident on Interstate 70 early Tuesday morning.
Police said the accident happened in the eastbound lanes near Donegal around 5:30 a.m.
Officials said the truck driver was on his way to the South Side when the truck flipped. As crews worked to remove the truck, some of the tires the driver was hauling spilled onto the roadway.
"I felt like I had real good control of the [the truck]. Once I went to the left side of the road and hit that gravel, I lost control of it. It felt like it happened in slow motion. I remember holding on to the steering wheel really tight and grabbing on," said driver Louis Banks.
Banks said it was snowing when the accident happened.
