BECKWITH - A tractor trailer accident in Fayette County Wednesday morning temporarily delayed commuters.

Crews responded to Route 16 in Beckwith just north of the entrance to the 4-H camp around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. No one was injured. 

The driver told Newswatch he felt the load shift in the trailer, causing the vehicle to swerve to the left, scrap the guardrail then cross the right side before slamming the nearby mountain. The truck was hauling condensers used in machine parts. 

Traffic was reduced to one lane while the truck was being recovered.
