A multi-vehicle accident involving a semi shut down Interstate 70 in Richmond, Ind. Thursday morning.

The accident happened in the westbound lanes just west of the Oho-Indiana state line.

The tractor-trailer went over the guardrail near the New Paris Pike overpass and down the embankment before landing on its side.

A number of other vehicles from the crash were towed from the scene.

The driver of the truck appears to be the only person injured in the crash.
