COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WRIC) — All southbound lanes were reopened on I-95 after a tractor-trailer crash that backed traffic up 6.5 miles the morning of Thursday, April 21.

The tractor-trailer reportedly jackknifed (pictured below) and hit a jersey wall in the median just before 8 a.m. The main roadway was closed between Exit 58 and Exit 54.

Police said the driver of the truck, 44-year-old Wayne Johnson of Metter, Georgia, was avoiding debris when he overcorrected and overturned his tractor-trailer. The truck was empty and was not hauling any cargo.

One northbound I-95 lane was temporarily closed. Metter was taken to Southside Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to state police.

Drivers were urged to take alternate routes while crews work on the scene. Police said that the crash was being investigated.
