HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) - A tractor-trailer crash on I-295 south closed all lanes and caused heavy delays Thursday morning.
The crash occurred in the southbound lanes at the Varina-Enon Bridge, closing all the lanes.
The adult male driver of the truck was hauling an empty trailer and was traveling southbound when he lost control due to a heavy gust of wind, causing the truck to overturn across all lanes along the bridge.
The driver was wearing a seatbelt and did not have any injuries.
Traffic was being diverted off from I-295 SB to Route 5. The ramp from Route 5 to I-295 SB was also blocked.
“There haven’t been any bridges closed here in Chesterfield. The Varina-Enon bridge is pretty close there to Chesterfield, but it is definitely something to be aware of,” Chesterfield Fire and EMS Lt. Jason Elmore said.
