SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A truck traveling south on Interstate-95 near Fredericksburg overturned Thursday morning after the driver changed lanes and clipped a U-Haul trailer.

According to Virginia State Police, the driver made “a quick lane change” after the travel lanes at mile marker 130 narrowed from three lanes to two. The truck “collided with an end cap actuator” and then hit the trailer before overturning, police said.

The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene. The other driver involved was not hurt.

According to the Virginia Department of Transportation, the crash initially blocked all the southbound lanes at mile marker 130 at the Rt. 3 interchange. Traffic was backed up for at least five miles but the travel lanes have reopened.

An investigation is underway.
