CALHOUN COUNTY (WIS) - One lane of I-26 westbound is still blocked after a morning tractor-trailer accident, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

A spokesperson for the patrol said the accident happened shortly after 9:00 this morning near mile marker 133 in Calhoun County.

Troopers say a SC D.O.T. truck was parked in the emergency lane of the interstate when it was hit by a tractor-trailer.  The tractor-trailer overturned and ended up in a ditch along the side of the road. 

The driver of the tractor-trailer sustained minor injuries and was cited for driving too fast for conditions.

The accident is expected to have traffic tied up on I-26 until 5:00 p.m. Traffic in the eastbound direction is not affected.
