BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. (WSAZ) – Police have released new information about a crash that has closed one section of Eastbound I-64 in Barboursville.

The crash happened about 10:45 a.m.

At least five vehicles are involved in the crash at the 21 mile marker, just past the Mall Road exit in Barboursville.

A number of emergency vehicles are on the scene, some parked on the edge of the westbound lanes. One westbound lane is closed in the area, due to the vehicles.

We have a crew on the scene.
