HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - A car carrier truck hit an overpass on I-95 in Henrico Sunday night, busting a water line.

The crash happened around 7 p.m. in the southbound lanes near Dumbarton Road.

The truck clipped the water main underneath the bridge, damaging it and causing a leak, state police said. The truck was not at the scene when troopers arrived.

VDOT is unable to shut off the water because it’s a main sewage line. Crews are waiting for the city of Richmond to come out and repair the lines.
