CAMP CREEK (WVVA) -  A truck driver was transported to the hospital after a collision on Interstate 77 caused his rig to overturn Tuesday morning.

The crash occurred around 5:30 a.m. on I-77 South near mile marker 25 when a truck rear-ended another hauling scrap metal, causing it to overturn and spill its load along the side of the highway.

The driver of the scrap metal truck was transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

Traffic was restricted to one lane as crews worked to clear the scene.

Authorities were unsure if fog may have played a factor in the crash.

The West Virginia State Police are investigating.
