HENRICO COUNTY, VA – A crash involving a tractor-trailer slowed down traffic in Henrico County early Wednesday morning, according to WRIC.
The incident happened on I-95 N at about 3:19 a.m. The Virginia State Police said the truck struck a guardrail on the left lane of the highway after the driver reached for something and lost control of the vehicle.
The tractor-trailer, which was carrying beer, went off the left side of the road. The driver and a passenger sustained minor injuries and were taken to an area hospital.
The center and left lanes were closed while the scene was being cleaned up, causing traffic backups.
