"At night pedestrians need to be extremely careful," Robbins said. "Obviously walking on the interstate is illegal. That should be avoided at all costs."
The northbound lanes of Interstate 77 were closed for several hours while emergency crews worked. Traffic was diverted at the Edens Fork exit.
Another single-vehicle crash on Interstate 79 near Pinch resulted in two people being sent to the hospital. Robbins said the vehicle rolled over into the median about 7:40 a.m. and the driver was entrapped.
The captain said their injuries were not life-threatening.
The southbound lanes were closed for that crash.
A two-vehicle crash occurred at 8:20 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Interstate 77 at the 112-mile marker. Robbins said information on that crash was limited.
A crash involving a car slamming into a retaining wall in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 64 near Cross Lanes just before 8:30 a.m. is being investigated by the State Police, Robbins said.
He said more information on the crashes would be available later in the week.
