At least one person has died in a single car crash on Interstate 64 in Huntington.

It happened around 3:15 p.m. near the 5th Street Exit.

Police say a blue Volkswagon Beetle flipped on its top in the median.

In addition to one fatality, police say others were injured.

No other vehicles were involved.

Officers told NewsChannel 3 speed appears to have been a factor. Police believe the man killed in the crash was not wearing a seatbelt.

All four lanes of the interstate were closed or moving very slowly for hours.

Police diverted westbound traffic off the 5th Street Exit and then back onto the Interstate.

Traffic finally began moving freely by early Monday evening.
