POWHATAN, Va. (WWBT) - Route 288 north between Westchester Commons and Huguenot Trail were shut down for a period of time Thursday evening due to two separate crashes.

The first accident involved a tractor-trailer and an SUV.

Then, on the other side of 288, a car ran into the back of a Powhatan Sheriff’s vehicle, shutting that side of the road down too.

There is no word on anyone’s condition.

NBC12 is working to learn more.
