Overturned snowplow briefly closes all lanes of Chippenham Pkwy

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A snowplow overturned on Chippenham Parkway going northbound Friday morning, prompting all three lanes to be closed while efforts were made to get the plow mobile again. The incident occurred near the Midlothian Turnpike exit.

Crews attempting to right the vehicle closed one lane, then an additional two, to make way for a John Deere construction vehicle. Virginia State Police were on scene assisting.

Chains were attached to the snowplow, and it was eventually pulled upright and back onto the road. There were no reported injuries.

According to the Virginia Department of Transportation, ice and snowy conditions continue to exist that make the roads potentially hazardous to travel.
