RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A truck driver has been charged with reckless driving following an early morning crash on Interstate 64.

Police say the driver of a box truck ran off the road just after 3 a.m. Wednesday on the east bound side of I-64 near the Staples Mill Road exit.

The truck hit a guardrail and spilled its load of bread.

It took crews a couple of hours to clear the scene.

It's believe the driver fell asleep behind the wheel.

The driver was transported to VCU Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries and is expected to be released some time today.
