New Market Rd. reopened; dump truck cleared


The Virginia Department of Transportation said New Market Road is back open again after a portion of the road closed Tuesday due to an overturned dump truck blocking the roadway.

The dump truck driver received minor injuries when the truck overturned Tuesday on Route 5, forcing authorities to close the road for cleanup.

Henrico police said only the dump truck was involved in the accident, which happened around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday on Route 5 (New Market Road) near Turner Road. The accident spilled gravel from the dump truck onto the road. New Market Road was closed between Kingsland and Turner roads while crews worked to clear the roadway.
