CUYAHOGA HEIGHTS-- All lanes now open.

Crews were able clear an accident scene on I-77 North that had shut down all lanes since this morning's commute.

It happened on I-77 northbound at Grant Avenue. Traffic on 77 North had been stop-and-go from state Route 21 northward. The delays continued past Grant Avenue.

Clean-up took much longer than expected since crews had to cut down a tree before they could remove the truck.

Total Traffic Network of Cleveland had estimated a delay of about 50 minutes while the highway was closed down.

A semi-truck flipped over near the Grant Street exit early Monday morning initially closing all lanes of traffic.

A medical helicopter was called to the scene of the accident.  There are no details on what caused the crash. 

The truck driver was taken to the hospital.  There is no word on his condition.
