BECKLEY — Glen’s Towing in Beckley confirmed that a tractor-trailer that overturned into a ditch off I-77 will be removed this week. The trailer, which was hauling bricks, overturned at Exit 48 in the northbound lane during last Wednesday snowstorm. A representative at Glen’s Towing said they are awaiting approval from the West Virginia Turnpike to remove the truck from the ditch, because the removal requires a lane closure. Glen’s said they are anticipating approval before the end of the week. It is not believed the driver was injured, but State Police could not be reached for comment.
