Motorists might want to avoid heading east along U.S. 60 outside of Marion.

There is reportedly an overturned tractor-trailer along the highway between Mattoon and Sullivan. The wreck is at the 15-mile marker.

A possible detour utilizing Ky. 654 is also blocked by a tour bus stuck at Fishtrap Road.

U.S. 60 is not expected to be cleared until around 2 p.m.
