U.S. 35 in Gallia County was closed in both directions most of the day Thursday, but it's now back open.
There was an accident Thursday morning involving two tractor trailers near the intersection of Ohio 850 and Rt. 35. Traffic was re-routed while the road was closed.
Police say the accident occurred when one tractor trailer failed to stop for utility work and struck another tractor trailer, causing the trucks to burst into flames.
Ohio State Highway Patrol and local fire departments responded to the scene.
