HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

A dump truck overturned on Interstate 295 North Thursday afternoon, trapping its driver and injuring several others.

Three people were taken to the hospital after the crash. Everyone is expected to survive.

Virginia State Police say the crash happened around 4:51 p.m. on northbound I-295 at Pole Green on the ramp in Hanover. Mangled metal was littered across the ramp after the dump truck ran off the road and hit a pickup truck - towing a trailer coming down the ramp from Pole Green Road.

The dump truck ended up in the woods, trapping the driver inside.

First responders freed the driver, Oswald Morris, from the wreckage. He is now charged with reckless driving.
