Allegany County Emergency Services reports a tractor trailer accident on  Interstate 68  at mile-marker 41 has the westbound lanes closed and just one lane of traffic on east bound open. The trailer was carrying paint which has mixed with fuel making for slippery road conditions,. Crews on the scene are spreading sand in order to make the roads passable. Traffic is backed up and proceeding slowly. You are advised to avoid 68 if possible at this time. 

The accident occured around 3 in the afternoon when a tractor-trailer jackknifed on Interstate 68 on Haystack Mountain.  Several vehicles traveling west suffered damage and were towed from the scene. The truck ended up upright, off the roadway. In addition to police agencies and first-responders, hazardous materials units and the State Highway Administration also responded.
