Posted: Updated:

The West Virginia Turnpike division of the State Police said that a toll booth at the Ghent barrier was knocked off its foundation on Tuesday.

A military truck hauling a piece of construction equipment was moving through the Raleigh County toll plaza at around 12:30 p.m. when the load hit one of the toll booths.

The load was apparently too wide to fit through the lane. No one was inside the booth at the time, but one toll worker, who was standing near the booth at the time, did receive minor injuries. 

The West Virginia Department of Transportation said that an booth was damaged in the accident.
