One person was injured in an accident on Interstate 77 in Washington county Tuesday morning.

The accident happened around 7 am just north of the Marietta exit.

Marietta police officers say 20-year-old Ashley Fiers of Northfield Ohio was driving southbound on I-77 when she bumped another car.

Officers say that car spun across the median and ended up in the northbound lane causing two semi-trucks to swerve and avoid the car.

Fiers was taken to Marietta Memorial Hospital. Her condition is unknown at this time.

Again, these two separate accidents are one mile north of exit one on Interstate 77 on both sides of the highway.
