BARBOURSVILLE — A garbage truck that spilled its load Monday afternoon across Interstate 64′s westbound lanes snarled traffic for more than an hour in Barboursville.

The accident happened around 3 p.m. near the Merritts Creek exit (Exit 18), backing up Huntington-bound traffic well past the Huntington Mall.

No injuries were reported, according to Cabell County 911 dispatchers. Traffic opened to one westbound lane around a half hour after the accident.
