CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

State Police are investigating a tractor-trailer crash that has closed the exit ramp from 288 South to Route 10 West in Chesterfield.

The driver of a Mack tractor-trailer ran off the left side of the roadway near the exit to Route 10 around 1:24 p.m. Thursday. The vehicle overturned onto its driver side.

The driver suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

The trailer was loaded with approximately 40,000 pounds of bulk paper products. All of the paper remains in the trailer but clean-up crews will first have to off load the trailer before up-righting the tractor trailer.

The ramp is expected to remain closed for several hours and through rush hour.

The crash remains under investigation.
