On February 1, 2016 at approximately 2327 hours, Troopers from the Maryland State Police Cumberland Barracks responded to westbound Interstate 68 West of Mountain Road for a report of a tractor trailer off the roadway. Upon arrival, a tractor trailer was located off the roadway in a snow covered ditched pinned against a rock wall. The driver, identified as Robert Ti Hornback, 61 years of age, from Elizabethtown, Kentucky, advised responding Troopers that he fell asleep while driving, and ran off the roadway.  Maryland State Highway Administration responded to the scene to address snow that had been thrown into the roadway as a result of the collision.  They also assisted with a temporary lane closure while the vehicle was off loaded to allow removal.
