Broad Street ramp to 95-South open after tractor-trailer crash


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — No one was hurt when a tractor-trailer ran off the road just before 4 a.m. in Richmond.

Virginia State Police said it happened at the Broad Street exit on Interstate-95 South Tuesday morning.

The driver said the crash happened because of a combination of the wet weather and the tires on the truck. VSP said the tractor-trailer ran off the road into an embankment, causing the tractor-trailer to jackknife.

“The driver was not injured and was charged with an equipment violation due to lack of tread on his tires,” VSP said.

The crash is still under investigation.
