HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia State Police is investigating a two-vehicle crash on the Varina-Enon Bridge (VEB).

Authorities say a 1990 Dodge Van was traveling north when it stopped partially in the right lane and right shoulder at the top of the VEB. While sitting the Dodge van was hit by a 2014 Dodge Ram pickup pulling a trailer.

The van spun and the pickup and trailer jackknifed after the crash.

According to VDOT, drivers can expect delays due to a crash. The north center lane, right lane and right shoulder are closed, creating a 1.5-mile backup.

Kendell Worrell, 31, of Richmond was the driver and sole occupant of the van. Police say he was wearing a seatbelt. Worrell was charged with improper stopping.

Kyle H. Knapp, 29, of Frenchtown, New Jersey was the driver and sole occupant of the pickup. Police say he was also wearing a seatbelt and was charged with following too closely.

Neither vehicle has passengers.

Chesterfield County Deputy Fire Marshal Joe Harvey told 8News the incident is now under control and that there is a small fuel spill which is why the lanes are closed.
