HANOVER, Va. (WWBT) - Two tractor-trailer crashes early Tuesday morning closed multiple lanes on I-95 North in Hanover County.
The crashes were near the Sliding Hill exit (Mile Marker 87) and the Kings Dominion exit (Mile Maker 98).
In the incident near Sliding Hill, a tractor trailer driver hydroplaned and slammed into a Jersey wall. The driver is OK and will face a reckless driving charge.
The incident caused a gas leak and slowed traffic for a couple of hours before sunrise.
In the other crash, Virginia State Police say a truck traveling in the right line struck another tractor-trailer truck that was attempting to pull onto the roadway after being stopped on the right should.
The truck that was pulling onto the interstate lost its load of chicken that it was hauling. The driver was charged with improper stopping on the highway and unsafe lane change.
There was also a diesel spill in this crash.
No injuries were reported.
VDOT says cleanup “will take an extended period of time,” but all lanes were reopened just before 8 a.m.
