Benjamin Harrison Bridge reopened after crash

PRINCE GEORGE, VA (WWBT) - The Benjamin Harrison Bridge reopened around 11:00 a.m. Monday after crews conducted repairs following a morning crash.

A tractor-trailer and car collided around 7:30 a.m. and damaged the bridge on Route 156 over the James River. It was closed for about four hours while crews fixed a damaged railing.

The log truck wasn't carrying a load at the time of the crash and neither driver suffered major injuries in the head on crash.

Approximately 50 gallons of fuel from the tractor-trailer leaked into the James River. The Coast Guard and Game and Inland Fisheries were called to help assist in the clean up.
