CULPEPER — At this hour, the Virginia Department of Transportation, Culpeper District is reporting 4 mile back-ups on Interstate 64 at exit 124 in the westbound lanes after a box truck collided with a tractor trailer. The impact caused the tractor trailer to overturn, spilling corn onto the roadway.
It happened shortly before 8:30 a.m. VDOT crews are on scene helping to clear the roadway. Drivers are being diverted off the Interstate onto U.S. 250 (Richmond Road), and then through the city of Charlottesville.
