The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office is investigating an early morning accident along I-64 eastbound near the Institute Exit just after 8:30 a.m. Saturday involving a car and a tractor trailer.

According to dispatchers, I-64 was shut down for nearly an hour while emergency crews extracted the victim, a woman, from the car. The victim was taken to a local hospital with unknown injuries.

I-64 Eastbound has since re-opened.
