INITIAL 7:14 a.m. REPORT:

No injuries are being reported as emergency personnel responded to a traffic accident that may cause delays to traffic this morning on Route B south of St. Thomas.

A tractor trailer overturned before 7 a.m. on the highway near Scheuler Ferry Road. Officers are directing traffic in the area as the scene is cleared, which may cause delays for motorists.

Because of conflicting information from callers reporting the accident, it took several extra minutes for responding deputies and firefighters to find the location of the crash.
