A section of West Virginia Route 92 in Greenbrier County has reopened following a tanker truck wreck that blocked the road.

The Greenbrier County Sheriff's Office says the truck ran off the road, hit a tree and jackknifed, blocking the road. Both the truck and the tanker caught fire.

The driver, Sheridan B. Browning of Marlinton, was taken to Greenbrier Valley Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The accident was reported around 2:29 a.m. Wednesday about 2 miles north of the Anthony Correctional Center.

The sheriff's office says the tanker was empty and there was no fuel spill.
