Travel on Interstate 78 in Berks County was halted for a time Thursday morning while crews airlifted a truck driver to the hospital.

A helicopter landed on I-78 near mile marker 26.4 in Tilden Twp. after a truck carrying a clay-type material rolled over on its side, trapping the driver.

Police closed the interstate in both directions while the chopper landed on the highway.  The accident happened between Hamburg and Shartlesville.

There's no word on the condition of the driver or what may have caused the accident, which happened around 10:30 a.m.

Eastbound lanes were  open, but the right lane in the westbound lane was closed while crews work cleaned up the mess. All westbound lanes reopened around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
