UPDATE: Wreck in Belden involves 18-wheeler

An 18-wheeler wreck Monday caused traffic to slow down on the eastbound on ramp for the Belden Highway 78 interchange. The accident took place 7 a.m.

The accident only involved the one vehicle and we understand that due to some leaking a detergent and a clean up crew has been called in.

E-911 Director Paul Harkins tells WTVA.com that traffic is now moving slowly and urges motorists who have to travel in that direction to use caution.

There has been no official report on what has caused the accident.

More as it becomes available.
