Slick conditions causing trouble on area roads

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – Part of I-95 N is blocked as crews work to clear the scene of an overturned truck Saturday afternoon. The accident happened just before noon between the Brook Road and Chamberlayne Avenue exits.

State Police tell us the driver of a rental truck carrying stage equipment, over-corrected and flipped the vehicle on its side. We're told slick roads and speed were both likely contributing factors. The vehicle, we're told, was also overloaded and top-heavy.

The driver was not seriously hurt.

Officers throughout the area have been responding to several accidents Saturday. They're urging motorists to be extra careful when driving in wet weather.
