RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A truck overturned on Interstate 95 Sunday afternoon, causing an hours-long traffic backup.

The crash happened around 2:00 p.m. in the southbound lanes near mile marker 74.

Officials say Wilson Munoz, 25, was hauling furniture in an Enterprise rental box truck when he lost control and overturned. No other vehicles were involved, and the truck driver only had minor injuries.

The right two lanes and the ramp at Exit 74B were closed for several hours during the cleanup process.

Officials say speed was a factor in the crash and charged Munoz with reckless driving.
