PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

Six people were injured after a car struck a tractor-trailer on Interstate 95 North, near Interstate 85.

Police say the car struck the tractor-trailer, causing the tractor-trailer to hit the Jersey wall and roll over it, blocking all southbound lanes.

The six people injured were in the cab of the tractor-trailer, and five were transported to the hospital. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured. The driver of the vehicle that hit the tractor-trailer was also transported to the hospital. All the injuries are non-life-threatening.

The tractor-trailer was hauling 36,000 pounds of watermelons.

All southbound lanes have since been reopened.

Police say charges are pending.
