(KMOV.com) – A tractor-trailer wreck closed one direction of Interstate 70 in Highland, Ill. early Monday morning.

Illinois State Police say the semi-truck overturned on the interstate at mile marker around 1:20 a.m.

The driver of the truck was transported to the hospital in unknown condition.

I-70 eastbound was shut down at one point so crews could clear the scene and traffic was being directed on the shoulder. The interstate has since reopened.

The cause of the wreck is under investigation.
