Traffic is moving again on Interstate 64 in Cabell County 12 hours after a tanker-truck accident.

The West Virginia Department of Transportation says in a statement that both eastbound and westbound sections reopened on Friday afternoon.

Media outlets report the tanker rolled over at about 3:15 a.m. between the Milton and Barboursville exits, forcing traffic to be diverted off the interstate.

Milton Volunteer Fire Chief Brent Taylor says the tanker was carrying propane, which didn't leak and was transferred to another vehicle.

Glassmaker William Blenko was born in England on December 8, 1854. In his late thirties, he immigrated to the United States and tried to produce stained glass for a living. Unfortunately, business after business failed—until he wound up in the Cabell County town of Milton in 1921.

A Michigan man paid a visit to Cabell County last week to see where his ancestors were once slaves.

Maurice Sanders is from Michigan, where most of his family lived for the majority of his life. His visit to Marshall’s campus and to Huntington last week on the surface is not unlike other visitors. What makes Sanders visit special, is that much of his family tree in the 1800’s was once enslaved in the area that is now Milton in Cabell County. It’s just up Route 60 from Huntington. They visited the grave site of Sampson Sanders, the man who owned Maurice’s ancestors, Friday.
