One injured when lost cement load causes chain of vehicle accidents

HUNTINGTON -- Interstate 64 re-opened about 9:40 a.m. Thursday, about one hour after a flat-bed truck lost a portion of its load just west of the Hal Greer Boulevard exit.

Police and witnesses said the truck was hauling powdered cement, but some of the load exploded into a cloud of dust when it fell off the truck and landed on Interstate 64. Witnesses said the cloud of dust made it nearly impossible to see.
