CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) - A tractor-trailer overturned Wednesday morning, closing a ramp from a major thoroughfare in Chesterfield.

Officials say the truck overturned on US-301 south near Chippenham just before 8:30 a.m. The driver was turning when his load shifted, causing the trailer to tip.

According to police on the scene, speed was not a factor and the driver will not be charged.

The on-ramp from southbound Jefferson Davis Highway to southbound Chippenham was closed for several hours while crews cleared the scene.
